THE STORY:

MANOS UNIDAS INTERNATIONAL INC wrote -

April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day . The UN theme for WAAD for 2015 is EMPLOYMENT- 80% of adults with Autism are unemployed due to shortages of vocational training programs.

April 2 we are kicking off our fundraising campaign to support Phawarispa- the FIRST and ONLY vocational training program for young adults with Autism and other intellecutal disabilities- in the region of Cusco.

We have 30 days to raise $15,000! The Children of Peru Foundation has offered to match up to $15,000 of the funds we raise.

Our 2014 matching campaign successfully launched the new program and we fully furnished the new building. Take a peak at our video from last year and our success.

This year we have 20 students in attendance and 9 staff members working to prepare students in the three established work modules: HOUSEKEEPING, RESTAURANTS and HORTICULTURE.

Our goals for 2015:

  • Implement our new vocational curriculum
  • Give students an opportunity to experiement with each module and find talents and abilities within our students for work preparation
  • Form agreements with local business for capacity building, awareness training and student integration
  • Form agreements with local restaurants for purchasing organic produce from our garden
  • Open Cafe Daria to the public every other friday to give students an opportunity to practice their skills (cooking, waiting, taking orders, handling money, etc)
  • Invite public entities to particpate in our objectives (regional government, local municipalities, ministery of education)
  • Carry out workshops for families for life skills preparation

Phawarispa budget for 2015: $52,000. Matching campaign + grant will fund more than half of this years budget. Student tuition will cover the remaining costs. Perks for YOUR donation:

$100: Receive a personalized video thank you

$250: Receive a handmade thank you card from a PH student

$500: A Garden space in your name

$1,000: Your name on a plaque on our honorary donor wall

$1,500: Sponsor a FULL 1 Year scholarship for a Phawarispa student and receive a full profile of the student and 3 updates per year (3 available)
