Mission Trips for Special Needs Teachers and Therapists!

Special Hope Network is a Christian mission organization that serves children with intellectual disabilities in Zambia. We work in poor compounds providing education, therapies, nutrition, medical care and adaptive equipment for children. For their families we provide training, community and support. We are always looking for individuals who are gifted with kids who have intellectual disabilities: Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Special Education Teachers, Behavior Therapists, and people who have degrees in ministry to those with special needs.

Where

We work in Lusaka, Zambia. Zambia has 14 million people, where the unemployment rate is over 40%, and most parents of a child with an intellectual disability become single parents, due to the stigma against disability. The prevailing thinking is that a child is cursed or contagious, and that anyone that serves that child, or touches him or his family will ‘catch’ the disability. We love sharing the gospel by caring for a people group that is not welcomed into society.

When

We are very willing to take individuals or small groups that would enjoy coming alongside us, at any point during the year that YOU are available. We only take three breaks during the year, for two weeks each. Depending on what the volunteers want to do, those may be times to avoid, or times to come (painting our Centers, maintenance, gardening).

Skills

Special needs training, staff training, Vacation Bible School organizing, Speech therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Behavior Therapy, auditors, financial oversight, painting/gardening/maintenance/building skills, and so much more. If you are interested, and have skills you are willing to share, write to us!

What We Will Do

See above. It really depends on what your skills are, and what your group would enjoy doing. We have so many needs, it is likely we will find a niche for you or your group based on your skills.
