Summary

The "Autism for Help Village Project" Trust will bring adequate educational, therapeutic, medical, vocational, and other assistance to the unserved, autistic children/peoples, and their families and caregivers, in the communities of south India.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The community in south India is facing a huge challenge in the field of autism. Diagnosis is often late, ignorance is rampant, help exists in too few places, is too costly, or is not available at all. The result is the children with autism in south India, unless rich, get little or no help. In autism early diagnosis, early interventions and the best possible kinds of treatment and therapy are the best hope for the children. My project would address this gap and close this need.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will start a school for autistic children. It will offer the best help available, sponsored with donations so that the children can afford it. We will purchase land and start a GFCF farm for food, vocational training, and raising money

Potential Long Term Impact

In the Autism for Help Village, the community of Autistic Children, parents and caregivers will receive long-term support, acceptance, and inclusion. The surrounding community benefits from increased job opportunities, food security, & understanding.
