Chand says with the expansion of the school, more resources are needed to help cater for an inclusive learning environment for the students.

“We are not directly asking for funds in monetary terms, but we request that people could help us with equipment and resources, which can help us help the children.”

While marking World Autism Day, Chand stresses the need to continue to raise awareness and advocate for individuals with special needs.
