We became involved with them about 6 months ago, and they have become friends, helping each other out in tips on education , areas we can help each other out in, etc. Some of our attending IHF children have siblings who are mentally handicapped, and the interaction is good for both IHF and Jembatan Senang.
Four Jembatan Senang students joined three of our students and one volunteer, Jing, in making crafts – this time , bracelets, necklaces and keychains.
It was a good time for all, and we hope the interaction continues, because it helps to normalize and remove some stigma from autism and mental handicaps in little steps, something that is very much needed in Bali, and Indonesia, in general.
