We have Home Skills Trainers to develop the home skills of our beneficiaries. In Ethiopia, the entire family works together to advance their family. This is especially true with the countryside farmer family. Most people in Ethiopia believe that individuals who have a developmental disability are unable to help their families. *The amount that children help the families is a direct correlation in how much families find value in their kids who have a developmental disability.
Our HST objective is very simple. The sooner we help our beneficiaries help their families at home with common everyday tasks; the more quickly families will reciprocate their help to their children. Our beneficiaries will begin helping their families more (as much as possible); either doing their own daily tasks by themselves or even taking on the family tasks.
…our beneficiaries have enjoyed learning more home skills, and their families are very thankful!
