Why I Want to Work With Kids With Intellectual Disabilities

Mr. Berven works with students in the GLAD program at our Resource Center. He teaches them academics, adaptive, and social skills.

I want to work with kids with intellectual disabilities because I believe they are human beings who are equally made in the image of God. Due to this fact, they deserve all the rights that pertain to the sustainability of the good life of a human being. Hence, they need health care, education, security etc. Due to their condition, they are mostly seen as one of the vulnerable sectors of our society.

I have come to like Special Hope Network as an organization which has identified the need to care for such a group of people which has not been given much attention by society compared to other vulnerable groupings. I feel I share the vision of Special Hope to help meet the needs of this vulnerable group of kids by serving under this organization as a means to glorify God.
