Companies that recognize their corporate social responsibilities towards host communities often invest in healthcare, education and other laudable initiatives.

One of such projects is GTbank Orange Ribbon initiative; a healthcare project which focuses on creating awareness about learning disabilities especially autism (ASD) and provide assistance to people living with these challenges.

When children have slow or insufficient emotional, physical development or intellectual capacity caused by Autism Spectrum Disorders, it is largely misunderstood by society, making it almost impossible for the affected child to cope with everyday demands of their environment and often leads to varying stages of social stigmatization.

Since 2006, GTBank Orange Ribbon Initiative has tried to:

autism week
  • Increase public awareness about ASD and requirements of children living with ASD
  • Advocated for the establishment of schools for affected children as well as integrated centers for adults
  • Sponsor, support and lobby for legislation that protect the rights of people living with developmental disabilities
  • Encourage government and private organisations to fund research in Autism
And with your participation, they can do more.
