Your Impact Around the World

March 13, 2014

Elim works to equip individuals with disabilities to achieve their highest God-given potential – in the United States and around the world! As the global community cries out for these resources, Elim is sharing its special education training, curriculum, and experience, helping to build a global learning community.
Here are some of the places where Elim’s international ministry leaders are at work:
  • Rwanda: Right now, Elim is partnering to create a special education teacher training program called Star Trac that will significantly impact access to education for Rwandan children and adults with disabilities.
  • India: In New Delhi, Elim partners started a rare school for children with autism called Ashish. Through Ashish and other outreach programs, access to educational services has increased and disability awareness is growing.
  • Zimbabwe: Elim collaborates with a ministry leader in Harare who has developed a caregiver certificate training program to improve care and support of children and adults with disabilities in a slum community. Elim continues to support development for a special education school and speech therapy training program.
  • Nicaragua: Using resources from Elim’s specialized programs, more staff members are being trained in Nicaragua. International ministry leaders are also working to secure discounted rates for medical physicals and free emergency care for children with disabilities.
  • Thailand: Elim is collaborating with ministry leaders to develop a Special Education Life Skills Program for students with disabilities. Too often, children with disabilities in other countries do not have access to proper schools, therapies, or resources. With your help, our International Outreach Network is meeting the needs of individuals with disabilities on a global scale.
