Issues: Disabilities

Location: 77 Water St. Eighth Floor New York NY 10005 USA

Mission: To build local capacity to provide services to individuals with autism in under-served communities worldwide, and to address the lack of resources and extremely limited understanding of autism that plagues many under-served populations, we partner with autism centers established by local individuals. Our community empowerment model supports systemic change by providing family and community education through workshops and hands-on training. We believe in embracing the talent and resources of the communities we serve by furnishing them with tools that engender self-reliance, sustainable development, and continued innovation. Through this comprehensive, bottom-up approach, it is our vision to build a world in which all individuals affected by autism have access to effective services.

I've been involved with the Global Autism Project for about three years now and in that time I have been constantly impressed with the knowledge, skills, and solid work performed by their staff. As a donor I am concerned with understanding the ins and outs of the program to ensure that donations are being used as efficiently as possible. The Global Autism Project has kept me up to date on the needs of the program and the progress of the autism center in Kenya, in a very transparent and consistent manner. In this age of fast communication via technology it was so refreshing to receive hand written thank you card in the mail! I have found their attention to detail and concern for their community inspiring. I feel privileged to be part of the Global Autism Project and I have loved the opportunity to be involved with such a fantastic and inspiring group of people.

I was born, raised and studied in the Philippines. I now reside in New York and have been hearing from colleagues and friends about Global Autism Project, a non-profit organization, dedicated to bridging the global gap in the resources and understanding of autism. My colleagues and friends introduced and took me to their website (www.globalautismproject.org). To say the least, I was amazed at what Global Autism Project does for autism around the globe. I met the Founder and CEO, Ms. Molly Pinney, in August 2012 when she was invited to ring the NASDAQ closing bell along with Global Autism Project supporters...I was there and had a chance to talk with Ms. Pinney. She is an amazing woman leading the Global Autism Project for a very noble cause. After I spoke with Ms. Pinney, I thought and was more than convinced that Global Autism Project needs all the support and donations to be able to continue what this organization has been doing for autism worldwide.

Autism is around the world even in the country where I was born - Philippines. No country is spared of autism. I wish Global Autism Project will visit my country, Philippines, and be able to impart the knowledge and expertise they have on dealing with autism and furnishing them with tools that engender self-reliance, sustainable development, and continued innovation.

I am now involved with Global Autism Project and would gladly join them on their trip(s) to the Philippines. I am trying to connect them to autism centers in the Philippines. We don't have the services, knowledge and expertise that Global Autism Project has. We need Ms. Pinney and Global Autism Project in the Philippines soon!

Let us make donations to Global Autism Project and make a difference in autism around the globe. Thank you for the chance of being a part of Global Autism Project.

As a long time supporter, I have seen what the Global Autism has done for children and their families. From summer paddles to conferences around the world, Molly and her team are really able to work wonders with children with autism. The work that the Global Autism Project does is so valuable and so necessary, and often invisible to main stream society. The Global Autism project gives parents their children back.
