Special Needs a Chance

Special Needs a Chance is a club in Virginia Commonwealth University. The objective of the club is to raise awareness and money to build schools for children with Autism in the developing countries like Nepal. In many third world countries like Nepal, children diagnosed with autism are often neglected and considered as a burden and shame to a family, and are sometimes chained inside their own house. Nepal’s government still doesn’t consider “School of Disability” as a need and doesn’t allocate funds. Despite this challenge, one strong woman in Nepal started a school to support such children. Her organization’s name is Special School for Disability and Rehabilitation Center (SSDRC). Founded with just  2 students about 10 years ago, this school has now grown to 45 with the support from private donations, and has more than 400 on the waiting list. 

         Furthermore, Mission Rebuild Nepal, an established non-profit organization has agreed to match dollar to dollar. This means that they will double the amount of money we raise. Special Needs a Chance and Mission Rebuild Nepal has decided to dedicate towards this cause by raising as much funds as we can. Please donate because these children really need our help.
