The Lord, who is love, led us to this area to bring change in the women and men's lives. We started with a group of 30, which was 10 committee members and 20 CHE's.

According to UNICEF, approximately 200 million children around the world were born with disabilities or became disabled during childhood. The CRPD is of critical importance to these children. Children who are members of this vulnerable population are more likely to live in poverty, are often times denied education and are disproportionately at risk of physical and sexual abuse."
