All God's Kids International
All God’s Kids International is a Christ-centered educational organization that provides resources and services to children with special needs in Central and South America. Our goal is to help children with special needs succeed and learn in an environment where they are unwanted, frequently misunderstood, and grossly neglected.
We also aim to partner with indigenous people to help create a paradigm shift in the way the culture views children with special needs: through training, everyone's God-given abilities can be developed and dignity can be restored as they learn to participate in society.
Featuring Hope School in Morazan, Honduras
Yeili is a 5-year-old deaf child who has attended Hope School for 2 months. Here she was introduced to sign language and has been a quick learner. She lives with her grandmother, and together they travel two hours to get to school twice a week. The Hope School is the only place that is willing to work with her!
Previously, every time Yeili came to the Hope School, her mother had to stay in order to hold her because there were no proper chairs or support that allowed her to be able to sit independently. During our trip to the Hope School in May, however, we created a chair that would help Yeili sit on her own. Using common items from the nearby market, including cardboard and a plastic child's chair, we were able to fill her need and bring a smile to her face. Her mother can now drop off Yeili for half a day at the Hope School and have a little time off. What a difference for both of them!
