We know it takes a village to raise a child, we are working with communities to raise awareness on disabilities and dispel the traditional myths and stigma on disability through these programmes:
Advocacy - Through our awareness campaigns and partnerships with key Stakeholders
Accessibility - Working with key stakeholders in Education, Employment, Health care
Mental Health - Providing practical and psycho-social support for Parents and families
Champion the unique abilities and talents of children with a disability and allow them to dream and have better outcomes in life.
Founded in 2016, by Barbara Kombe, Hope and Salvation is steadily growing into a successful non profit organisation. Barbara has worked with families and children with disabilities for several years in the UK as a nurse and Public Health practitioner. Together with colleagues who share a similar passion, they are transforming the narrative around disability in Africa, allowing children to dream , innovate and be leaders,scientists of tomorrow.
Together with partners , we are working to provide sustainable solutions to achieve the goals that we set out with and for the communities we serve.
The genesis of our drive is to ensure the voices of children with a disability and their caregivers are heard. ‘Nothing about them should be without them’.
We acknowledge the challenges of parenting a child with additional needs or disabilities and standing on the pillars of our Christian faith, we offer hope through listening, kindness and love. We do not enforce our christian beliefs on our patrons and neither is it a requirement for support. We are open to support anyone who has a disability or a child with a disability no matter what creed, race or gender. Our leadership rejects complacency and wishes to embrace people as individuals, seeing them only as having a different-ability.
What we do
We adopt a social and human rights approach to give the child with a disability a voice and an enabling environment that is inclusive for them to thrive and contribute positively in society.
We seek, with our partners, to develop more sustainable projects that will change the status quo.
Our model, projects, and ideas are driven by the strong partnerships we have. You could become a partner too.
