Why to support AfA?

Laos is one of the least developed countries on earth. Here is no ponderable support to persons with disabilities. Even more, development disorders such as Autism are widely unknown. The association as well as the Vientiane Autism Center do not get any public funding or support. All our activities are financed by the parents of children with Autism or - to a still very limited extend - by donations.

Laos has no experts in special education yet. Under these condition we try our best  to assist our students to become self-reliant and live joyful and meaningful lives within their communities. Therefore we employ well trained teachers in special education from neighbouring Thailand. This makes fees at Vientiane Autism Center quite expensive. Only very few families can afford the 220 Euro per month.

Therefore AfA established a scholarship fund aiming to open access to therapy and education for more children with autism. Currently the fund is able to support sixteen families, but applications from six more families can't be approved due to budget constraints. Currently we need 2.000 Euro of donation per month to keep the VAC running.

So we need support. If you are interested to help please contact us.
