Autism for help village project 50 children

1. Our facebook group has 161 members now. The membership is still climbing steadily with a base of sincere, deeply interested Indians and people from all around the world. 2. Our project has been linked to http://www.RespectedOpinions.com/ and has been twittered and facebooked by the forum's founder, Nicholas Nagao. 3.. Since commencing the Global Giving challenge (August 1) through today, 10 August, AfhVP has raised $1240, from 19 donors, and received 40 comments, 40 votes, and has won the $200 incentive awards from Global Giving for crossing the first threshold of expectations required of a potentially successful project. The AfhVP also has received 162 facebook "likes". We have almost crossed the third threshold too, by our calculations, which was to raise 300 dollars or get ten comments.

Manmeet Singh of GG says: Have you noticed that two projects on the leaderboard are blue? These are "champion" projects because they've raised over $500, secured over 10 donors and have more than 20 comments.

AND WE ARE ONE OF THEM ! CHECK IT OUT HERE. ROOT FOR US. WE'RE GETTING READY TO TAKE OFF. http://www.globalgiving.org/leaderboards/evoke/ If we get just one more donation of ten dollars we will become a heroic project.

We want to thank all of you for helping us get this far. We would also like to ask you for further support, networking with your friends and colleagues, so that we can get the remaining $1800 required from 31 donors, and 10 votes and comments as quickly as possible. Sure of your help and resultant success, we hope to continue to work together with you to make this project a resounding success.

Please be sure to continue leaving your comments, offering your thoughts and constructive feedback.

  • Thys
    Thys In a recent dutch report linked on the site of the dutch autism association it says, that having a child with autism at home is disruptive for family life and detrimental for the development of the autistic child. If they can be cared for in a surrouding, that suits their needs, both the family and the child have a better... Read more »

    santosh babusenan This is a wonderful initiative! Autism is little understood in India and this project will certainly help create greater public awareness about the condition. The self-sustaining village is an excellent idea especially in India where adult autistics are usually uncared for and left to fend for themselves. There are few, if... Read more »

    Satish Babusenan With AfhVP, I think you are talking about seriously working towards care and development of people with Autism and related syndromes. In India we need this, Koshy. People know very little about these conditions and so your effort will also help create awareness. Your initiative prompted me to search the web for information... Read more »

    fluidinks i think its a very genuine initiative to make things better. Often its the ignorance about things, that delay any form of action. I sincerely hope that the awareness not only increases, but also translates into actions with purpose.

  • avygravy
    avygravy This is a project that is desperately needed in India where autistic children are given no due and there are no facilities to train those who can help such children. It will help build a community of those who have been blessed by autistic children in ways one cannot imagine. Good initiative and hope it can really take off.
