Dear Batch ’79 Sisters:

Greetings of jubilation as Autism Society Philippines – Bacoor Chapter
celebrates its 3rd Year Anniversary! We are proud to tell you that this young
chapter has not failed to deliver the services it has envisioned for its clients and for
the public that it seeks to involve in its advocacy for children with autism
(CWA’s). Now at three years old, we have expanded our membership beyond the
boundaries of Bacoor and had spearheaded the creation of new chapters in
Dasmarinas, Tanza, Trece Martires and Molino, Bacoor. We have joined hands
with close to 300 parents and professionals all over Cavite, and established
partnership and linkages with a host of private and public schools as well as local
government units to strengthen the chapter’s foundation and to pursue a more
rigorous campaign to promote the rights and well-being of children with autism.

For our 3rd Anniversary Program, the Chapter has lined up a host of events that aim
to further educate and empower parents, siblings, caregivers, and professionals to
address the special needs of CWA’s more effectively; provide opportunities for
CWA’s to exercise their skills and talents to mainstream levels; and, intensify
autism awareness in the communities, as we have seen the positive impact of such
campaigns over the past three years. Hence, we shall be launching empowerment
seminars for parents, caregivers and professionals caring for CWA’s; a siblings
support group workshop; painting/exhibit and mountaineering workshops for
CWA’s; and a First Holy Communion for Catholic CWA’s.
We have always wished that we could give the best opportunities to our members
and to the public for free. We, however, do not have the financial capability to run
such programs on a sustained basis, save through the help of supporters and
benefactors who see the value of helping a cause-oriented group such as the ASP.
We, therefore, seek your support in subsidizing our programs, to ease the parents’
financial burdens as they take advantage of these opportunities, to provide decent
honorarium for our resource persons and partners, and to secure the logistics and
equipment necessary in our continued operations and outreach (such as an office
and an LCD projector.)

We are happy to have gone this far through our service and sacrifice. We pray that
we can go much farther in improving the lives of persons with autism, together
with partners like you. In one spirit, let us not tire in doing good works for persons
with disabilities, for the rewards will certainly be much, much more than enough!

Thank you so much and may God bless you more!

Yours truly in service,

Mary Janette I. Pena
