For the past two years we have done some great work for the children with autism in the slums of mathare in nairobi kenya.
This has been enabled through your donations and gifts to our program.Throughout the year 2018 we have had up to 80 children receive free expert therapy.These are children whos parents cannot afford basic therapy services due to their little income.They are not in formal employment and hence depend on seasonal jobs which do not give them more than three dollars a day.
Our biggest challenge so far is paying rent for the premises which is 150USD a month.Then the motivation money for our volunteers to cater for their lunch and transportation money.These are volunteers who help in handling the children in between the therapies.The volunteers also include the occupational therapists,Speech therapists and nurses.
Your donations are doing amazing work on the ground here in Kenya.The money has gone towards the betterment of the lives of children with autism from very humble backgrounds.They can now attend therapy which is free and their parents can have some time off as we fully take care of the children.
If you can make your donation to be reccuring every month then our rent problem will be solved.We also request you to take up the rent burden for the therapy center,the food burden,because we need to be providing the children and the parents with autism friendly food and also the burden of paying one professional to be a permanent employee of the therapy center.The salary for the occupational therapist to be fully employed at the therapy center would require 250USD a month.May God touch you and use you to help accomplish this work.
