Welcome

To the NEW Our Future is Yellow

Website…..

OUR MISSION To help change the perception and understanding regarding Autistic spectrum disorder and learning disabilities, that will facilitate cultural changes within Kenyan communities. To see the child behind the diagnosis and give them a voice, rights, acceptance, social inclusion that leads to a better quality of life for those that have none. The Yellow Rose classroom is to be an integrated part of the full school called Topcrest Academy: The children of Topcrest will be supported within the building until the Yellow Rose community fund raise to build their own school, which will be adapted to accommodate both mainstream and autistic children OUR GOAL The building the children use is rented and needs some repair, however it has a very strong foundation and houses eight classrooms, kitchen, staff room, toilets and a spare room. The school stands on a small plot of land used as a playground and has a borehole. The main aim of the Yellow Rose project is to raise funds to purchase the building and two acres of the surrounding land. We intend to renovate the school, which has eight classrooms, one of which will become a sensory and relaxation room and one the other for the disabled and autistic children.The remaining four will be for the pupils whose impairments are not as severe as the afore mentioned. The extra land will make the school self-sufficient, with livestock and harvest bringing in an income for the schools; as well as empowering the children in gaining new life skills such as how to harvest, look after livestock and sell their produce at the market. These opportunities will also enable them to develop their social skills as well as basic maths and English. I am working on a project plan and five year projected outcome, which I will forward to you with accompanying quotations on the land, building, livestock, crops and all school expenses, including teacher’s wages and resources.

CLASSROOM

Yes….some subjects are indeed

taught indoors! The Yellow Rose

classroom, however, will have

links to the full school, to the

community, to the outdoors in

general, with livestock and

crops. The main aim of the

teachers and supporters will be

to promote resilience by

teaching living skills, self help

skills, communication skills.

Carolyn whom has a masters in

autism will endeavour to give

knowledge and support to

teachers and parents so they

can see the child and learn that

their behaviour is not

inappropriate behaviour it is

communication

These children, now hidden

away, will be proudly holding

their head high, walking through

the streets of Mombasa. We

need to give these children a

voice, their own voice.
