Dear Friends and Family,
Many of you know of my life long passion for teaching and learning from children with special needs. That mission has led me to join Hope Speaks. Hope Speaks is a wonderful ministry to help children with disabilities in Kampala, Uganda. One in seven children there are living with a disability. Their main ministry is providing Speech Therapy to hundreds of these children. They teach them to swallow, chew, understand and express language, and so much more. Many of the volunteers are Speech Language Pathology grad students, like me, as well as Speech Therapy professionals. This will help them reach many more children with these services.
Hope Speaks has gone beyond that and also includes hosting other groups who help with projects, food for families, children's day camps, and going and serving in the slums.
Please help me share the gift of language as I travel to Uganda this October. Every donation is important and will enable me to be present and help these children with disabilities. Would you kindly consider making a contribution? Also, I would appreciate your willingness to share this with others who may want to participate!
Thank you so much for being a part of my life and helping me accomplish something that's important to all of us! God bless you :)
