Empowerment Through Education
Formerly EdPowerment's special needs outreach program called Autism Connects Tanzania, CAT officially registered as an independent Tanzanian NGO in 2015. The organization's mission remains (1) to educate guardians, teachers and others who serve individuals with autism and co-occurring conditions, and (2) to advocate for broad-based change in the way Tanzanian society and schools treat this population.
Today, in addition to its ongoing advocacy and support for caretakers, CAT specifically focuses on trying to build vocational programs that address the needs of the autistic population past primary school age. It actively seeks grant and other funding to help secure its independent role in pushing for systemic change in Tanzania.
