Looking forward to an amazing 2016, thanks to you

Looking forward to an amazing 2016, thanks to you

Dear Donors,

Only four months through the 2015-2016 school year and we already have many accomplishments, thanks to all of you.

Autismo en Voz Alta’s main goal is to develop students’ skills and abilities to allow them to integrate effectively within their communities. Recently, two of our students developed academic skills and behavioral improvements that allowed them to be integrated in regular schools. We congratulate them and their families for their huge accomplishment!!!

In addition, our oldest students have developed many independent skills and are now able to move around the building with minimal supervision while delivering messages and performing minor chores.

Meanwhile, we have continued working on improving our educational system. We now have a physical education program that aims to develop motor and leisure time skills while increasing students’ abilities to pay attention and follow instructions.  We are very proud that a high functioning autistic teacher, an old patient of our institution, runs the program. In addition, two additional psychologists joined our assessment services team while our management is reviewing the process to strengthen the quality of our services.

Our best reference is the satisfaction of our teachers and families for the work done. Parents are very happy with their kids’ learned skills and teachers are looking forward to work with us. We truly hope that you will be as excited as we are in our efforts.

In Autismo en Voz Alta we are committed to improve and enhance the scope and quality of the education we offer. Your support makes this possible.

Looking forward to an amazing school year

Dear Donors,

What a great two weeks of fundraising!!!  We are pleased to announce that THANKS to all of you, we have met 50% of our goal.

For many families, their dreams are coming true!  Without generous donors such as you, this would not have happened. We cannot express enough our gratitude.  The prospect of not being able to afford and continue the education of the children is just horrifying.  Many Venezuelan families are struggling to meet their children’s educational demands due to hyperinflation.  Thus, their best hope for this program to continue is through donors like you.

As of today, thanks to your generous contributions, our students will receive at least the same financial support they have received this school year.

In addition, your enthusiastic support and quick response has opened new and fantastic possibilities at Autismo en Voz AltaIf we can fully fund our project we can enroll 16 additional children to our program next school year, and extend the amount and the number of scholarships we give.

Imagine, more students to have hope of developing their skills towards a better and independent quality of life.  What a wonderful and exciting outlook!

While we continue our fundraising efforts, our Program Director will commence work to open a new classroom to welcome these 16 new students.  Our Technical Director will prepare to develop their individual educational programs, and our Staff is fully engaged in processing admission and scholarship requests.  In addition, during the summer, our top management will review and strengthen our audit and intervention process to maintain the quality of our program.  

On June 17, Global Giving will match 20% of all donations from 25US$ to 1,000 US$, on a first come and first matched basis, until all funds run out.  Won’t you please spread the word and share with your friends to help us meet the remaining 50% of our goal in June?  We truly hope that you will be as excited as we are in our efforts.

Will continue reporting …

The hands of many kids with autism are shaking yours in appreciation.
