Over the past one year,the contributions we have received from Global giving have made a big positive impact to the children with autism in the informal settlements of Mathare in Nairobi Kenya.
These are children who before the free therapy program was established they weren't getting any therapy since they could not afford the prices set by the hospitals around. The parents of these children with autism were for long torn between taking care of the autistic child or fending for their other children who are neuro typical.
The establishment of the therapy center in mathare has made gains and changed lives.Every single cent that well wishers have given through this platform has been put into very good use and the receipts and invoices are all properly recorded.
From the last two disbursements from Global giving total up to 800USD.We budgeted 300USD into rent payment for the premises where the free therapy is offered. 200USD went to play toys for the children and 300USD went into feeding and transport money for the volunteers who come to the therapy center every single day to offer their services for free to the children.
From Step Up 4 Autism we would like to very much thank you for the continued support. We are far from achieving our ultimate goal of free therapy country wide in Kenya for children with autism and other developmental disorders. In this journey of making a difference in the lives of children with autism we wholeheartedly invite you to walk with us. Thank you .
