Guidelines for Writing

In everything we write—from stories, to captions to status updates—we represent Hands and we educate our readers about the work we do. So before publishing any of our written work we need to ensure that proper checks have been made and standards have been adhered to. You should reference this guide to aid you in any writing you do for Hand at Work in Africa. Thank you for helping us to tell God’s story of hope and healing in Africa.
