Autism Awareness in Moshi, Tanzania

GO Campaign is proud to share that two GO Local Heroes, Brenda Shuma and Grace Lyimo, have been leading efforts to improve the lives of children and families affected by autism; their efforts were highlighted in the August 2014 online edition of IPP Media. In Tanzania, there is little recognition or understanding of the condition and little help is given to those who need it. Brenda and Grace are working to build a basis of support for families of children with autism by providing education, resources, and advocacy.
