Hope & Compassion is a charity that works with other organisations abroad to improve the lives of children with Special Educational Needs and their families living in poverty in developing countries.
At the heart of Hope and Compassion is a team of experienced professionals from the UK, qualified in education and specialist therapies. The countries where we work have very few practitioners with equivalent qualifications, so we are sharing our skills and best practice to train project staff on the ground. We work with local charities to train and educate their members of staff, giving a lasting legacy of high quality skills and experience abroad.
To promote awareness of Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disability through social care education, using modern technology to ensure that the appropriate care and knowledge can be disseminated to both helpers and children.
To advance the facilities provided for the children enabling them to understand and participate in specialised stimulatory activities.
To enhance the physical environment for the children, giving them the room to explore, learn and socialise in an environment that caters for their special needs.
To provide an exchange programme for children with Special Educational Needs and disabilities, educationalists, therapists and other professionals, in order to promote specialist skills and understanding.
