World Autism Awareness Day Celebration

Last 5th of April we celebrated the World Autism Awareness Day in the shopping center Nuevo Centro. It was an amazing evening and everything went great. Thanks to the MUA volunteers (Raquel M., Anabel, María, Rosángela, Esther G., Raquel R. y Mari) for their great work. Thanks Falla Antonio Molle – Gregorio Gea of Mislata for their beautiful show, and thanks to the three groups that delighted us with their live music. We enjoyed very much Gema Hernández performance. She came from Alicante and played with David Barberá some songs of her last album “Lo que vendrá”. The guitar genius Frank Crespo showed us that impossible things can be done with an acoustic guitar, playing several songs of his album “The Perfect Circle”. Nacidos de la Tierra finished the performances with a memorable concert, interacting with children and the public, and filling the shopping center with rhythm, passion and love with themes of their album “Todos somos libres”. Thanks Unión Musical Española Nuevo Centro for the sound equipment and the technician that spent the whole evening with us. Thanks Nuevo Centro for the stage and the space. Thanks to our unconditional fans and to all that were there with us. Without you and without all that follow us everyday and give us support our project would not be possible. We love you.

2nd April, World Autism Awareness Day

UN Secretary-General’s Message for 2014:

This year’s World Autism Awareness Day is a chance to celebrate the creative minds of people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and to renew our pledge to help them realize their great potential.

I treasure my meetings with individuals affected by autism – parents, children, teachers and friends. Their strength is inspiring. They deserve all possible opportunities for education, employment and integration.

To measure the success of our societies, we should examine how well those with different abilities, including persons with autism, are integrated as full and valued members.

Education and employment are key. Schools connect children to their communities. Jobs connect adults to their societies. Persons with autism deserve to walk the same path. By including children with different learning abilities in mainstream and specialized schools, we can change attitudes and promote respect. By creating suitable jobs for adults with autism, we integrate them into society.

At this time of economic constraint, governments should continue to invest in services that benefit persons with autism. When we empower them, we benefit current and future generations.

Tragically, in many parts of the world, these individuals are denied their fundamental human rights. They battle discrimination and exclusion. Even in places where their rights are secured, too often they still have to fight for basic services.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities provides a strong framework for action to create a better world for all.

World Autism Awareness Day is about more than generating understanding; it is a call to action. I urge all concerned to take part in fostering progress by supporting education programmes, employment opportunities and other measures that help realize our shared vision of a more inclusive world.
