Rafiq is now a confident father who will be able to help not just his son, but serve more children with multiple disabilities in the community where he lives.

After Rafiq and his wife were unable to find the best services for their son living with autism, they decided to study special education. With corporate support, we have given Rafiq a scholarship to pursue his Master’s degree in Special Education in Multiple Disabilities from National Institute for Empowering People with Multiple Disabilities(NIEPMD). Upon course completion, Rafiq will now be able to provide remedial services for children with multiple disabilities.
