Learn More About The Lord's Hands

In this increasingly complex world, education is one of the most important investments in life. The educational mission for the Lord’s Hands is awarding computers to promote human potential to BYU-Pathway Worldwide students in Africa.

 

Although we are not affiliated with BYU-Pathway Worldwide, we value its low-cost, flexible, online approach to higher education in over 150 countries.

 

Income inequality prevents many African BYU-Pathway students from owning a computer, which is necessary to complete university-level courses and obtain their online degree. The Lord’s Hands addresses this problem by awarding computers to exceptional BYU-Pathway students through a competitive process.

 

Please donate! Help us buy more computers and change more lives!
