Here's what she says:
"Klicks Africa Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that has been in existence since 2016, in support for persons with disabilities especially individuals or teens between the ages 12-18 years with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Downs Syndrome and other persons with intellectual disabilities.
After years of challenges and perseverance, which has brought some glimmer of hope to parents living with Autism and other intellectual disabilities, the biggest question still lingers on: what happens if such parents are not around and those special needs children grow? How will they cope with life and the society at large?
It is for this reason that, Klicks Africa Foundation offers the necessary skills needed to face the challenges of raising children with Autism and other intellectual Disabilities.
Vision: Klicks expect to see young adults with Autism and other intellectual disabilities strive to reach their full potential.
Mission: Our aim is to strengthen families and influence communities, by creating inclusive environment for Adult with Autism and other Intellectual Disabilities
Values: We appreciate diversity and the unique ability in each other for development
