About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

2012 Is autism year; All over the world action have been taken in order to advocate for this cause. Not all children affected with autism are receiving the special care they deserve in order to reach their full potential in life. Many other Pervasive Developmental Disorders (autism is one of them) appear from 2 to 3 years and an early diagnosis is essential to determine the severness of the syndrome as well as the pedagogical approach.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Create a center that will be one of its kind with its educational/behavioral approach, far from academic and scholar programs, especially with all the variety of activities it offers such as dance, music, theatre, arts, etc…
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

A working mother of two is overwhelmed by her daily life routine. One of her children has autisme and needs special assistance. The nanny at home is not enough as he needs to have adequate follow up and the mother can't stop her work.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

She can drop in the morning her kid at the center where he will be around other kids, will benefit from a paramedical support and will earn social skills. In the afternoon, his brother can come directly from school to the center have lunch and study. On her way back from work, the mother can pick them both up and she can be sure both her kids received good care and protection.

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

The fees we will be taking from each kids will be enough to sustain the center.

A lot of charity organization are implemented in the country. No one can ensure the quality of the services. The network that the center is building will provide a roll out of updated approachs.
