Mentoring Program

IRODA is committed to creating new opportunities for young people in Tajikistan. We are excited to share about a mentoring program that is doing just this. Community members volunteer their time to mentor young people and help them to follow their interests and learn new skills. Currently, the interests that young people are pursuing, with the support of a skilled mentor, include cooking, music, dancing, videography, pottery and sports.  

Not only are young people learning new skills and developing their interests, but they are building relationships with others in the community. Misunderstandings and stigma have often kept children and young people with autism and other disabilities isolated from their communities and with limited opportunities to engage in recreation. We are pleased that community members are volunteering their time and building relationships with previously isolated young people. This is contributing to long-term societal change. IRODA is taking the opportunity to highlight this program in the local media to assist in changing attitudes more broadly. 

Thank you for your ongoing support enabling IRODA to develop new programs such as this. We hope to expand the mentoring program to include work skills in the future and hope that you will continue to partner with us.
