The Problem

Children with autism all over the world are misunderstood, ostracized from their community, and not given the tools to succeed. Their families often feel alone and do not have the resources to properly take care of their children. On top of that, there are few people who are actually trained to teach people with autism. 80% of the autism population in the world are in developing countries.

The Solution Offered by Global Autism Project

Global Autism Project partners with centers and schools all over world, to train their staff in culturally relevant, sustainable practices. They train the staff through a volunteer program called SkillCorps, which sends skilled professionals all over the world to educate and change communities. SkillCorps teams are taught cultural humility, to get to know the culture on a deeper level so that they may have the strong and sustainable impact.

Global Autism Project

The organization began when one woman traveled to Ghana and realized that no one had the tools or support to deal with their children with autism. They were ostracized from their community for fear of demon possession, when in reality, their mindset was a lack of education. She realized the significance of sending trained professionals to developing countries and started her organization in November 2003.
