2011 has been a very busy year for all of us at the Autism for help Village Project Trust. We have seen many new faces on our fb pages, and welcome each and every one to share thoughts, seek support, and contribute art, information, or links as and when able.
We are making headway in our development, with the Autism for help Village Project Trust's banking account getting established in October, 2011. And we can tout 448 facebook likes, 274 facebook shares (and 2 favorites), and 130 donations from 92 people, totalling $5275.00 so far!! Our present target is 50,000 US dollars. We also have a first iteration of the village designed.
The Autism for help Village Project is attracting attention in the global community as well. AfhVP facebook-site contributor Vidya Kishore, who works with parents of autistic children and is in in Dubai, has been raising awareness, and funds, through local projects, and her informative online posts, sharing insights and inspiration for those in the Autism community.
And back in India, we are in the process of getting Tax Rebate approval for local Indian donors.
With our energetic facebook contributors and other members, we are gaining in popularity and in our ability to realize the vision of the Autism for help Village Project.
Slow and steady wins the race; we hope to see you on Global Giving, Facebook and our other sites, as we work together towards a more informed, involved, and fabulous new year 2012. Thank you very much for your interest and support; it means so much to us and the members of the autistic community we work to serve.
