Pilot Project at Peace Village
Peace Village in Quang Nam province has over 100 residents, including over 20 special-needs children and nearly 50 other abandoned babies and children.
Before CCV began its program, only one part-time physical therapist was available and no education was provided for the special-needs children. Now, two additional physical therapists are on board full-time and CCV’s professional teaching staff provides a full-day of schooling in four subject areas: Literacy, Numeracy, Communication and Life Skills. Each child with disabilities has an Individual Education Plan, and progress is assessed annually.
All preschool children at Peace Village now receive a day of enriching educational activities, and older children who are struggling in school receive extra help after school.
There is a buzz of activity at Peace Village these days. Children are learning to read and brush their teeth and move their bodies. Smiles greet their teachers and words and laughter fill rooms that were silent. The existing staff has expressed astonishment at the focus and energy and emerging abilities of children from whom they had expected nothing.
Early Intervention Program
In the southern region of Quang Nam province, hundreds of special needs children languish at home without any schooling or therapy.
Four-year-old Tran lives with her family. She has cerebral palsy and receives no education or therapy. We would like to help her and an estimated 200 others in the same situation. In December 2020, we are opening a day school for children like Tran. We have funding for the first year for 15-20 children, but need individual child sponsors to make sure we can continue beyond the first year. And we would like to help even more kids.
Our program costs approximately $150 per month per child. Can you help us make sure every child with a disability in Quang Nam gets the education and care they need? If you want to sponsor a child, write to us.
