The Hands and Feet Project was started by Mark Stuart and Audio Adrenaline in 2004, when they purchased land to establish a village for abandoned children. They began construction in early 2005, and their first little girl arrived in the spring of that year. By 2007, more than 30 children ranging in age from 2 months to 9 years old live in the Hands and Feet children’s village near Jacmel, Haiti. Hands and Feet plans to expand next to Nicaragua. The mission of Hands and Feet is two-fold – first, to care for orphans and, second, to use pop culture to introduce the First World to the orphans of the Third World. Their vision is to raise a generation of orphans raised by their own cultures who will change their countries so orphanages are empty and Hands and Feet is out of a job. As the number of abandoned children is expected to grow to 40 in 2008, Hands and Feet plans to replicate the model, bringing artists and bands together with orphans. For $125 a month, an individual can sponsor a child, covering everything the child needs – including food, education, caretakers, clothing, medical care, water, and utilities. Additionally, volunteers are welcomed at the children’s village. Groups of up to 12 can stay at the children’s village, helping with construction and spending time with the children.
