It's the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving....Happy GivingTuesday! Join Special Hope Network this GivingTuesday, and play a part in creating a world of hope for children with disabilities in Zambia.
Special Hope Network is a faith-based nonprofit located in Lusaka, Zambia, working with children who have intellectual disabilities. In Zambia, accessibility to care for children with intellectual disabilities is very low, and in Lusaka, facilities and programs offering necessary therapies and education are few and far between. Kids who have disabilities are often left incredibly marginalized and vulnerable, and without a community of support, families are unsure how to care for their child.
Enter, Special Hope Network and the Community Care Centers! Our Community Care Center (CCC) services include medical guidance, family counseling, motor training, communication support, feeding instructions, and educational lessons. Each center provides a space for 50-125 children and families. Our CCCs operate as parent training centers, and are one-stop-shops for everything a child needs, and all the resources and training that a parent or caregiver requires. Our CCCs consider every aspect of the childs health and well-being so that each caregiver can be trained based on the specific needs of their child.
As families continue to commit to the holistic care of their child with disabilities, our Zambian community is reminded that all children are created with great purpose, a need for love and belonging, and with the ability to positively impact their communities!
Join us in loving on these incredible children and families! Your support allows our Zambian staff to provide each child and family with exceptional care, training, love, and guidance.
