For other net participants we can offer an expert guidance through trained staff, give an expert opinion, procure expert information and establish new contacts in the field of our work.
SWAC is a non-profit, non-government, non-political and voluntary organization founded with the intention of helping children with autism in establishing their rights to education, social acceptance and to lead meaningful and productive lives. SWAC has been very effective in its mission. But with an increasing number of students and staff it has become extremely difficult for SWAC to run such an expensive program without assistance.
In order to carry on its present activities properly, expand its activities, implement future plans and programs and to provide services to individuals with autism from all walks of life throughout the country SWAC needs its own premises and substantial financial support from the government, non-government and donor agencies.
Please come forward.
