Every child matters.
The World Health Organization estimates that 2 of every 10 children in the developing world are disabled either physically, intellectually or both. Most of the children who have special needs world-wide are not registered at birth, and have no official or legal status– they may not be counted, but they still count. Special Hope Network is a faith-based organization working in Zambia, Africa that was created to encourage, support, and train existing programs. We also provide economic solutions to address the needs of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Zambian community. We are looking for partners in this mission: Are you ready to help?
