We have travelled to Sierra Leone with Junior our 27yr old with autism since he was a child. On these trips, I have seen so many individuals with the same problems, being received with minimal support and acceptance. I have decided to open a day program where individuals with special needs can spend their day in a supportive and safe environment.
With no access to day programs in Sierra Leone that cater to them, I have witnessed adults with special needs roaming the streets and having to endure living in an environment where people sometimes throw rocks at them, yell at them or suffer beatings. This breaks my heart as this could have been my 29 yr old son with autism had he not been born in the USA. Adults with special needs want what everyone wants. They want love, support and acceptance. This can be achieved if we raise awareness and sensitize the communities to their disabilities, and help them understand how they can support individuals with special needs. You can help by donating to our cause.We want to build a facility where individuals with Autism and other special needs in Sierra Leone can spend their day in a safe place where they are supported to be the best that they can.
