Help a child know the dignity of going to school … and the hope that it can bring.
Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me.- Matthew 18:4-5 ESV
Watch Justine’s incredible story of transformation.
There are children who abuse me and laugh at me.- Justine, a Ugandan girl who had to walk on her knees
For a child with a disability who’s not in school, life is a vicious cycle: no school, no job, fewer options, deeper poverty.
The barriers to education are enormous:
Many parents buy into the lie that a child with disabilities isn’t worth educating.
Schools are too far from home for many kids with mobility issues.
Even if they can get there, buildings are rarely accessible.
There are no special devices to help vision-impaired kids see the blackboard.
There are no hearing aids to help them hear the teacher.
They face stigma, isolation
Watch these journeys of hope, healing and learning — and see how your compassion transforms children’s lives.

“This is what the artificial limb has given Laxmi: the ability to walk upright and along with her friends. She does not have to lag behind anyone any more.” – CBM partner in Nepal.
“I just like to play.” — Vincent, the orphaned boy who can see again thanks to cataract surgery and a brand-new pair of glasses.
