Please CLICK HERE for just ONE snap shot of a life made better. The video was made by Neena Wagh on one of the students at ASHISH.
At the school, The ASHISH FOUNDATION currently works with 35 full time autism students in the New Delhi area. With the funding from this campaign they will:
- Cover their current payroll deficits for the coming school year and
- Add enough staff and professionals (Lead special education teachers, O.T.'s, P.T.'s, Speech & Language Pathologists) to add 5 more full time autism students to their current student load (waiting list of well over 100)....students who otherwise would be hidden away, without schooling of any kind, or any of the services required to facilitate their being able to communicate in this world.
- Train 10 young people in the economically challenged New Delhi area. This will add to their professional data base of autism workers, improve the quality of life for the families of the trainees and significantly improve social awarness (addressing stigmatization of both girls and intellectual challenges) in the area.
