Hair Aid charity. Hair Aid does 2 main projects: International projects & Hair Aid Community Cuts (HACCs). International projects: Hair Aid’s first mission recruits & sends volunteer hairdresser to overseas locations to provide free hair cutting training for people living in critical poverty. Our teams volunteer directly with people living on the street, or slum communities, or with ladies rescued from the sex trade and prostitution gangs. Our volunteer hairdressers teach a 5 day hair cutting course, giving the skill to cut five basic haircuts. This skill is used to start a micro business and create an income to support themselves and their families. We do this training in the Philippines, Thailand ,Indonesia and Cambodia. Hair Aid’s second mission is to recruit and coordinate volunteer hairdressers to work with organisations in their local community (support organisations, churches, community groups, etc) that support those in our own communities that need a hand. We call these events Hair Aid Community Cuts (HACCs). Our teams support community groups, charities, government organisations and/or church groups that care for homeless, domestic violence sufferers, migrants or those just in suffering at a time of crisis. Our teams provide free haircuts, for 2 –3 hours every six weeks at their local Hair Aid Community Cuts event. It is with this all these events we need help.
