About this Fundraiser

I'm going to Uganda with Hope Speaks!

My name is Erika Liechty, and I am a speech language pathologist who has been practicing for almost 4 years now.  I volunteered with Hope Speaks in August 2017 for 2 weeks, and during that time I was able to help provide speech therapy in schools, children's homes, and the Hope Speaks outreach clinic.  It was an incredible privilege to work alongside the therapists there in order to help each family in their process of caring for a child with a disability.  Initially, I did not think I would be going back to Uganda anytime soon; however, I was asked to consider returning for a longer commitment of 2 years in order to help with supervision and training of newer therapists.  After much time spent thinking and praying, I realized that this opportunity is from God and this is what he has for me next.  I am so excited for this new experience, and I am ready to work hard to best love and serve whoever I can.

Hope Speaks is a wonderful ministry to help children with disabilities in Kampala, Uganda. 1 in 7 children 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, 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.

Every donation is important and will enable me to be present and help these children with disabilities. Would you kindly consider making a donation? 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!
