As part of its effort in addressing the neglect and stigmatization of children living with Autism face, daily, GTBank has created a short film “A MOTHER KNOWS” to raise awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in Nigeria.
According to the WHO, 1 in 160 children live with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) worldwide.
In Nigeria, however, the condition is hardly diagnosed, rarely understood and children with ASD often suffer neglect and stigmatization.
To address these challenges, GTBank launched the Orange Ribbon Initiative to support children and adults living with Autism and other developmental disorders.
The film, “The mother knows” was designed to help Speak up against the stigmatisation of people living with Autism and other developmental disorders.
