We are a faith-based non-profit committed to making a difference in the lives of the many children neglected in Africa as a result of visible and invisible disabilities.
Our mission is to reduce inequalities by enabling access to good healthcare and education. We advocate for social inclusion for children with disabilities in Africa.
Hope & Salvation is committed to joining hands with relevant stakeholders in advocating for children with visible and invisible disabilities in Africa. We want to use evidence-based innovative solutions to create a barrier-free world for these children in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UN CRPD).
Founded in 2016 by Barbara Kombe, Hope & Salvation is steadily growing into a successful non-profit organisation that works passionately to ensure children with disabilities in Africa are given the best opportunities in life. Barbara has worked closely with families and children with disabilities for several years in the United Kingdom as a nurse and Global Health Specialist. Together with her colleagues who share similar passion, their desire was to transform the world of children in Africa by embracing inclusiveness into a global community where everyone would have the opportunity to build a life of dignity. Together with partners, Hope & Salvation are inventing sustainable solutions to reduce the challenges of these children.
The Genesis of our drive is to make sure that the vulnerable children with disability are heard and their potentials seen. We understand how challenging it is for families to have children with such disabilities. We know many might have failed to keep the courage and we want to offer hope to acknowledge the positive possibilities that lies ahead.
We are driven by love, kindness, resilience, a leadership that rejects complacency and challenges members to go all out to make our patrons smile. Hope & Salvation seeks to offer more than just help, we wish to embrace and nature and celebrate the unique abilities, gifts and talents that children with a disability face.
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.
