  • The Hands of Hope Project is a celebration of immigrants and former refugees strength to build their lives again in a new country.
  • “The hands portrayed in these photographs farmed, built homes that got destroyed by wars or natural disasters, buried loved ones, waved good bye to those left behind, and above all protected, fed, provided, sheltered and held little ones and now once more they called to rebuild again from scratch in a new country.” - Jean Luc Dushime
  • "It takes strength to build a life,
    It takes even more faith and hope to build it again"
