Decades of experience in training teachers all over the world guide our approach to first understand the needs of the community and teaching conditions before designing our professional development sessions for teachers and administrators seeking information on effective practices for including children with disabilities into schools.

Our guiding principles embrace the belief that all children can learn and focus on a child's ability rather than disability.  Everyone can contribute positively to society and is a valuable member of a community.

Teacher training

Our 2024 Team includes 14 professionals volunteering their time and talents. Each member brings a set of skills valuable to the work we have planned and fund their travel expenses through grants or personal finances. 

100% of donations received will go to the following projects. View our 2024 Itinerary here: 

Needed now: Donations for medicines. We can buy more medicines in Uganda for so much less! De-worming for children, prenatal vitamins for women, malaria tests and medications... all of these improve the lives of vulnerable populations.
