DOWNSYNDROME

What is Down syndrome?

Down syndrome is a genetic condition that results in some level of learning disability and a particular range of physical characteristics. The condition is caused by the presence of an extra copy of chromosome 21 in a baby’s cells

AUTISM

What is Autism?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a life-long developmental disorder, which impacts primarily three areas of social interaction, communication and repetitive and restricted behaviors activities and interests.

Down syndrome and autism are both equal opportunity conditions, meaning that anyone, anywhere, regardless of race, creed or socioeconomic status, can have a child with either condition.

The effects that an intellectual disability has on an individual are greatly influenced by the attitudes and opportunities of the community that he or she is living in. most children with intellectual disability grow up in social and educational deprivation. They are not welcome at the same clubs, playgroups and social activities attended by other people of their age. They only mix with people with similar or more severe disabilities in segregated settings. They are denied friendships, Relationships, work life, social celebrations, interactions, active participation and in some cases their basic right to live.

What we do

We support children and youth with Autism and Downsyndrome to reach their full potential!

How the Bond Event Brought Joy and Connection to the Down Syndrome and Autistic Community Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending the Bond Event, a special gathering for people with Down syndrome and autism and their families and friends. The event was organized by the Bond Foundation, a nonprofit organization that aims to promote social inclusion and empowerment for people with different abilities. The Bond Event was held at a beautiful park, where there were various activities and games for everyone to enjoy. There was a bouncy castle, a face painting station, a balloon artist, a music corner, and more. The atmosphere was festive and cheerful, and I could see the smiles and laughter on everyone's faces. But what made the event truly special was the bond that was formed between the participants. People with Down syndrome and autism often face challenges in communicating and interacting with others, especially those who are different from them. They may feel isolated or misunderstood by society. The Bond Event provided them with an opportunity to meet new friends who share similar experiences and challenges, and who can offer support and encouragement. I witnessed many heartwarming moments during the event. I saw children playing together, holding hands, hugging, and dancing. I saw parents exchanging stories and tips, offering comfort and advice. I saw volunteers cheering and clapping, showing kindness and respect. I saw a community that was united by love and acceptance. The Bond Event was more than just a fun day out. It was a celebration of diversity and inclusion. It was a reminder that everyone deserves to be valued and respected for who they are. It was a demonstration of how much joy and connection can be created when we bond with each other. I want to thank the Bond Foundation for organizing this wonderful event, and for their ongoing work to improve the lives of people with Down syndrome and autism. I also want to thank all the participants, families, friends, and volunteers who made the event possible. You are all amazing and inspiring. I hope that the bond that was formed during the event will continue to grow and strengthen in the future. I hope that more people will join this community and support its cause. I hope that we can all learn from each other and appreciate our differences. I hope that we can all bond with each other
