Every child deserves an education.
Our goal is to do all we can to make Faith Special Education School open in Addis Ababa in 2017, serving the needs of those with disabilities.
Disability is found in every society and in every country. Ethiopia is no exception. A 2006 study showed that the percentage of those who identified with disabilities in Ethiopia was 1.5%; However, the same report indicated that up to 10% of any given population have disabilities. Thus, they are often underreported and overlooked.
We believe that establishing a special education school will give opportunities to children who are often overlooked or even shunned, giving them their best chance to reach their full potential. It will also give these children a visibility in society that they currently lack, allowing them to become cared-for members of the community. Through the long-term process of Christian education, we'll be able to greatly impact the lives of persons with disabilities, and the community around them.
