Families Struggling with Autism
A Mother's Wish seeks to support families struggling with autism by: 1) Empowering and supporting families struggling to raise their autistic children by building an empowering community of support so that they would not feel isolated; 2) Raising funds for programmes/communities/families in need based on specific projects; and 3) Working on projects to ensure the sustainability of A Mother's Wish, which harness the strengths of autistic individuals and the resourcefulness of their families.

Ensure the sustainability of A Mother's Wish and support Sebastien, my autistic son, to earn an income for his future, through his artistic talent, while helping others.
Most programs for youths and adults with intellectual disabilities are targeted towards those whose behaviour enables them to better function within mainstream contexts. However, such an approach excludes their counterparts like my son who have difficulties making these accommodations. With this e-commerce Website and other creative projects, we hope to enable my son and others like him to make a living.
