Autism South Africa is expanding it's inclusive learning centre, Bright Kids ECD. Bright Kids provides fun and meaningful learning opportunities for children with disabilities who are excluded from other learning centres. The exclusion from early learning opportunities prevents our children from being able to develop to their full potential. We know that individuals with Autism can change the world, we just need to provide the right support and opportunities for them!
We are raising funds to open a second classroom with trained staff and quality educational resources. Once we have achieved our goal of R200 000 all donors will go into a lucky draw to win an incredible prize!
