Inclusive Education

Christian Horizons works with local partners and donors like you to build, supply and staff inclusive classrooms. Not only are children with and without disabilities receiving education for the first time, they're beating the odds and reshaping how their community views people with disabilities.

Ways to Support Inclusive Education

Sustainable Community Development

With a focus on including people with disabilities, we support communities to be sustainable and strong. From entrepreneurship training to vocational skill development, nutrition support to farming education and supplies, we believe that promoting sustainable and inclusive development is the key to long-term self sufficiency for people with and without disabilities in developing nations.

Ways to Support Community Development
  • 80% of people with a disability live in the developing world. 90% of children with a disability don’t have access to education. Help us keep making a difference.

Christian Horizons Global was introduced to opportunities in Nicaragua in 2007. Since then, our services have been based upon a small sponsorship program which impacts over 100 families. This program is located in two underdeveloped neighbourhoods - one in Managua and one in Esteli. Currently, 135 children are supported through the child sponsorship program.

Haiti

Christian Horizons Global has been working in Haiti since 2009, serving people who experience physical and intellectual disabilities, people who are unemployed and those affected by natural disasters such as the 2010 earthquake. In Haiti, we have a longstanding and valuable relationship with an international church denomination. Through this partnership and the support of generous donors, Christian Horizons Global has been a catalyst for inclusive education and community activities, spiritual leadership, micro-enterprise projects and a child sponsorship program that supports over three hundred children and their families. We work across seven communities to strengthen opportunities for inclusive education and sustainable development.

Guatemala

Since its inception as Children’s Homes International in 1990, the influence of Christian Horizons Global has continued to increase in Guatemala. In Guatemala City and several rural communities, Christian Horizons Global provides holistic, practical, and long-term development programs that are a source of hope for people living in difficult circumstances, often facing the barriers that accompany disability. Through residential family-type homes, inclusive education, and spiritual development programs, Christian Horizons Global strengthens local community capacity toward a sustainable future. Partnerships with international and local churches and local schools have benefited from development opportunities in local communities. Christian Horizons Global supports over a hundred children through our child sponsorship program in Guatemala.

Uganda

The Uganda initiative began in December 2009 after first-hand reports (from earlier that year) of the abject poverty and lack of resources that prohibited many children from getting a quality education. We have worked together to strengthen local leaders, meet emergency support needs of those with disabilities and families led by single mothers. Our partners share our passion for inclusion and accessibility for those who have disabilities.

Female | Guatemala

Waiting for Sponsorship Since:
May 5, 2020

Brenda lives with her parents and two siblings in the mountain-side village of El Morro. Like most families in the area, Brenda’s parents work together to harvest coffee beans, corn and black beans to earn their income. Almost half of the children in the school in El Morro rely on sponsorship support in order to attend. At the school there is a resource room where students with various disabilities can go to receive individualized tutorial support to supplement their learning. Students, regardless of ability, pursue their goals while remaining integrated with their peers. Your sponsorship support will contribute towards Brenda’s tuition, nutritional support, clothing, and medical treatment as necessary. Thank you for making a difference in Brenda’s life.
