VOCATIONAL/JOB TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR AUTISTIC YOUTH
This holiday season, please consider making a tax-deductible charitable contribution to help us provide vocational training to autistic youth in the foothills of Himalayas.
Here is why you should join Sahyog to help autistic youth to learn job skills:
Being an autistic child is in itself a big challenge to cope with the issues of learning basic socio-emotional skills and education. Autistic children, especially in developing countries, suffer a lot due to the lack of support system to meet their special needs. Some lucky ones who get some support from organizations, like Sahyog, suffer another challenge of finding livelihood after completing their education at school. Their transition from an educated special kid to adulthood, to a career a life of independence and dignity is full of distress, anxiety and struggle.
It has been very hard to see that after spending so many years at Sahyog Schools to get high school education, these young men and women themselves without any work and/or source of earning livelihood. They again feel neglected and helpless to find their space in their society, which often adds to their anxiety and depression.
That is why Sahyog has started imparting vocational training to these young men and women. We are not only training them in specific job skills, but also plan to provide them opportunities to earn livelihood. Our vocational programs include:
• Candle Making Training
• Eco-friendly Canvas and Paper Bags Making Training
Skills required for the above programs are particularly suitable for autistic youth, as these activities involve simple processes for them to comprehend.
Your generous support will help us to cover the costs of:
• Equipment (Paper Molding Machines and Dye Machines)
• Training Kits
• Raw Material
• Trainee Cost
We hope together we can advance lives of autistic youth by fostering their independence and interaction in the society in a fruitful and respectful manner that every young person deserves.
