In Jamaica 600 children are born each year with Autism; additionally 4,400 are born with spectrum related conditions such as A.D.D. and A.H.D. It is estimated that in the school system there would be 70,000 students with a range of severity. (Ages 4 – 18)
Children with these conditions are unwittingly targeted by parents and peers as “fools.” We at CJMAS are trying to make a difference in the lives of these children. We are using the opportunity of our 25th anniversary celebration this year, to highlight the LIAM project along with our other initiatives, Open Arms Drop in Centre for the mentally ill, Kingston and our scholarship program.
Our Goal is to raise $50,000 CAD to fund these initiatives.
