Important Project Update

MAITS are thrilled to report that to date, we have continued to make great strides in rolling out our training programme to support children with special needs in Pakistan.

In partnership with Ziauddin University, MAITS has just finished training 6 therapists as Master Trainers (MTs) in February 2021. Three of our Master Trainers have begun to train local community healthworkers in rural regions.

Afshan Memon, a MAITS Master Trainer and Speech Language Therapist/Audiologist, has delivered this in partnership with The Talk Clinic in Hyderabad, Sindh Province. This is the very first time MAITS has trained in this region. 

Afshan has just finished training 15 healthworkers here and has generated so much interest, that MAITS have been featured on the local news channel Abbtakk News.

We've included a link to this video of the coverage as we are proud of this fantastic achievement.

Afshan is already confident that through local community health workers, the clinic will be able to reach many more parents, carers and children with developmental disabilities in the rural regions of Hala, Nawabshah, Matli and beyond.

At ACELP Institute of Child Development, Karachi, Pakistan, MAITS have trained 6 therapists as Master Trainers who have just trained 15 Community Healthworkers (CHWS). They will now reach and impact upon the lives of many more children with special needs. 

Thank you to all of our trainers, volunteers, supporters and partners in our work. You are hugely important to us.
