Extended Hands International, Inc. (“EHA”) is a non-profit organization created in memory of my loving grandmother, Willow Sharpe. She was the most influential person in my life, a wonderful woman with a huge heart. I have dedicated this organization to her.

Extended Hands International will use the donations towards construction of new schools, churches and hospitals that will help the people of Africa and the rest of the world. “EHA” will cater to every human on earth and along with the wildlife in Africa and other parts of the world. “EHA” is also focusing on promoting a healthy lifestyle and a clean environment. We strongly believe that every man, woman, and child deserve a fair chance to have a good life no matter who you are and where you come from. “EHA” will create jobs for people and help the economy grow, domestically and internationally. We as a nonprofit organization would like to thank you for your time and donation. May God Bless you and the rest of the world.
My name is Thomas J. Sharpe, founder of Extended Hands International, Inc. established May 2012. I was born on the west coast of Africa, Monrovia, Liberia. As a child I saw a lot of things growing up such as extreme poverty for the less fortunate and some inhumane behavior which changed my perspective on life as a child. During that time I was separated from the most important person in my life, my grandmother, Willow Sharpe. She was a woman with a huge heart, very loving and caring to those who had an opportunity to meet her. No matter who you were or where you were from, she was “mother” to many people and I’m glad I had an opportunity to have her in my life. This made a huge impact on me growing up.
I always wanted to do something special to honor her and for that reason Extended Hands International, Inc. is dedicated in her memory.
