Perkins International Academy
The world’s most vulnerable children need your help.
Education is a human right for all – including people with disabilities. But children with multiple disabilities and deafblindness are among those most at risk of exclusion. Without education they face a life of isolation and neglect.
Perkins International stands ready to increase the world’s supply of qualified special educators. To succeed we need your support. Here are three steps you can take right now to help us change the world – one teacher, and one student at a time.
