The year 2018 was a challenging year for our team in Zambia but we managed to reach some of our goals, nonetheless. Autism awareness is vital to the communities of Zambia and Jaden’s Voice continues to house, feed and provide therapies for children impacted with autism. This year we were able to provide repairs to two pools that are used for sensory therapy and teaching the children how to swim since they live near waterways in Africa. Statistically, drowning is one of the leading causes of death for autistic children around the world.
Here’s what our team has reported: “The Jaden’s Voice Tusole School in Ngwenya Township of Livingstone Zambia has been very much appreciated by the autism community there. The children now are able to learn in better conditions, during the rains it was hard for them. There is more room for improvements such as we need more toilet units with running water. The autism education you have provided to the staff and community allows the kids to get better learning and treatment. We have also saved children from death because you have taught this community that these kids are not demons. PRAISE GOD.
We are now also networking with Maramba’s Old People’s home where the vulnerable old folks are kept. The reason for deciding to do this is that autistic elderly folks also live there. I have visited the center run by the government and life for these folks needs to be improved. I am trying to put an entertainment system for these loved ones so that they are able to access Television. This will improve their way of life and boredom will be eradicated. Many of these elderly will stay here until their lives end.”
Jaden’s Voice continues to do some AU-mazing things around the world, always remember your generous contributions are being put to AU-some use! We won’t stop pushing to create a world more inclusive of autism!!
