We live in a world where children with learning disabilities often get discriminated and stigmatized against. Houses of Hope stands against these acts in the hope to create a better world for aiding youths.
Houses of Hope Africa is a non profit organization that provides what we agree should be available to every child: a loving home, clothing, food, access to an education and someone to care for them. Hope House has been bringing hope to Nigerians with special needs, opening the door for them to live a fully comfortable life. This is great not only for Nigeria’s special needs population, but for the local communities in general.
Elimination of Stigmatization
Hope House goal is to provide a safe educational and social environment for the youth with special needs. It dreams of a world where discrimination and prejudice against special needs individuals will no longer exist. The Hope House exercises patience to the task of equipping special needs children and adults with the education, training and self-confidence they require to become fully-integrated and contributing members of society.
How they started
The Hope House was created out of a need for special-care facilities for children and teenagers with different levels of learning disabilities and developmental problems. It has a learning resource center and also provides lodging when needed.
USAID has been supporting empowerment programs for youth and young adults. Among these programs are Houses of Hope Future,It’s always heartwarming to witness initiatives and projects like these that bring people and organizations together in order to support a society from within. By providing basic facilities, essential tools, and life lessons to different sectors of Nigerian Society, these programs are strengthening Nigerian society and contributing to the safety, wellbeing and proliferation of its members.
