Quang Nam 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.
Phu Ninh Early Intervention Program
In the southern region of Quang Nam province, hundreds of special needs children languish at home without any schooling or therapy.
Since 2020, we have operated a day program for children with Down Syndrome, autism or other disabilities, who live with their families in the Phu Ninh district of Quang Nam province. From 8 am to 4 pm, five days a week, our staff provides individualized care and instruction to 23 kids who formerly received no schooling at all.
Our program costs approximately $85 per month per child. Parents contribute what they can–on average about 25% of the cost. 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.
