How You Can Help

Our operating costs are high because the ABA method is based on individual and small-group work. The full economic cost of maintaining a child at the School is $4,800/year (£3000), a figure that is well beyond the capacity of most Guyanese families. We ask parents for whatever donations they can afford, but no child is ever turned away for financial reasons. Many of the parents of our current students are unable to donate anything, and actually require our additional assistance with travel costs and the provision of lunches or snacks.

As awareness and recognition of autism increases in Guyana, we anticipate that demand will grow, with parents looking for quality educational services for their children. We would like to be able to respond to this rising demand, but can only do so if we employ and train more tutors.

We can be contacted at sjismail1@gmail.com; vanessaseebarran@yahoo.com or kalaramnath1@yahoo.co.uk. Become a friend of Step by Step Guyana on Facebook where you can get updates on all things autism and info on our activities. If you’ve donated, please send us your information so you can be properly acknowledged.

Here are some ways you can help us:

  • Sponsoring a child: You provide fees, or partial fees, on behalf of a child ($325/£200 per term).
  • Teacher Sponsorship: The high-intensity educational services that we provide for children at Step by Step is very costly. Sponsoring all or part of a teacher’s salary (approx. $480 /£300 per month) can be one way to help us.
  • Donate funds: This can be a non-specific donation to the overall running of the school. You can sponsor events, both in cash and in kind. You can even sponsor the costs of workshops, expert/consultant visits, or the purchase of equipment/learning resources locally or from overseas.
