About This Project

Our ministry is with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The purpose of this ministry includes:

Provision of educational and training programs to facilitate the church ministry with persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Enhancing collaboration between churches, faith-based communities, disability services, and advocacy centers.

Organizing outreach to raise awareness in the church for the need to empower people with disabilities to enable them to experience full church community participation.

Organize seminars, workshops, and conferences to generate ideas on how best to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to reach their goals and fulfill their dreams.

Why give to this project?

Through our diverse advocacy programs, we aim to supply people who have disabilities with access to the necessities of life, helping them meet their physical, material, and spiritual needs. Though we need your help.

Through our Disability Awareness and Inclusion programs, we are reaching out for support for people with disabilities in the church and in a wider society. We need help with funds and media publicity- news outlets and advertising.

Through our outreach programs in churches and faith-based communities, we are enhancing collaboration among church leaders and stakeholders. We need help to secure more partnerships (donors) at the local and international levels.
