Challenge

On April 4th 2019, Human Rights Watch reported: "the combination of severe medicine and food shortages within Venezuela, together with the spread of disease across the country's borders, amounts to a complex humanitarian emergency that requires a full-scale response by the United Nations secretary-general" Just think how much support our families need to meet their children's special needs.

Solution

Operate and provide comprehensive education to 110 students with autism, assessment services for 300 children/teens, and access to need-based grants for all. We are committed to successfully addressing the current challenges through out-of-the-box thinking. Our inspiration: The resilience and explicit request for support from our community - families, children and personnel - who despite very challenging living conditions want to show-up every day to battle and work for a better future.

Long-Term Impact

Venezuela is facing the worst economic crisis in Latin American history. In the face of such hardship, our community has chosen the path of resilience. We are committed to moving forward, learning, improving, and being a model for those living with autism. We aspire to develop the skills of children/teens with autism and their families, in order to facilitate their effective integration into society. We seek to provide assessment services to address the developmental needs of those with autism.
