Lots to learn in the kitchen...As IRODA has grown as an organization over the last 5 years the children that they been working with have also grown up! The committed IRODA staff are continually looking for ways in which to encourage the children and young people that they work with to gain new skills. A recent addition to the space in which IRODA works with young people with autism has been a kitchen. This is providing great opportunities for those who attend IRODA’s programs to develop some basic cooking skills. With the support of IRODA staff they are learning the steps that are involved in preparing food, as well as learning to follow instructions and work together. As they do this there is the added motivation and reward of being able to eat what they’ve cooked!
Many of the young people IRODA is working with have spent a significant part of their childhood without opportunities to attend school or be involved in their local communities. IRODA is committed to seeing these young people develop new skills and have the chance to participate alongside others in family and community life. The new kitchen at IRODA is just one way in which young people can gain skills for life within a supportive and understanding environment. Your on-going support of IRODA’s work is allowing us to continue to create new opportunities and experiences for children and young people with autism in Tajikistan.
