Open Hands Initiative
The Open Hands Initiative is a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by Jay Snyder.
Open Hands is dedicated to improving people-to-people understanding and international friendship through exchanges and other projects that focus on our basic shared values and common humanity.
Our work takes place in the spheres of everyday life - health, culture, education, and recreation - and stresses that each and every country has much to teach and learn from one another. Please visit our Programs page to learn more about our specific projects.
