Autism Care Norway Nepal

Background story

While sitting in a cafe in Kathmandu in December 2011, an article about the situation of autistic people in Nepal caught my attention. It took less than two minutes for me to understand that there are significant differences between being autistic in Europe and Nepal.
Since then I have tried to raise awareness and financial support as an individual.
By founding the organization Autism Care Norway Nepal I wish to establish an official platform to support and coordinate projects which are meant to alleviate the hardship autistic people, their families and those working with them face in everyday life. 

Best regards
