Thank You! 🙌

I am so grateful for the outpouring of support from around the world!  Our dream of opening a day program for  individuals with autism, and other special needs in Sierra Leone is finally getting it’s legs.

The interviewing and assessment process has begun and its looking very promising.  The banners, tables and chairs are complete, and the staff have been hired. Everything is coming together so nicely and it’s making me so happy!

In other news, Junior and I went to see the movie Black Panther on Saturday.  Jr was very excited to see all the people dressed in their African outfits, as he was wearing one too.  The movie was so good!  The most important lesson to learn from Black Panther is that regardless of your education, or social status, you should preserve your culture and traditions while embracing the culture of others.  You don’t have to give up your African culture and traditions just to fit into Western culture!  We have a diverse and beautiful culture that we can introduce others to and they will love it.

Junior's Place of Hope was started by Henrietta Bassey. She is a devoted mother to her 27 year old son who has autism. She has done everything in her power to help create an environment that will accept her son and others who have autism and other special needs. They deserve to live in a society that treats them with respect and dignity.
