PETALING JAYA: Activists working to help autistic children today launched a bazaar featuring only products made by autistic youth, in a bid to help the community to be independent.
The Autism Youth Bazaar at the Evolve Concept Mall in Ara Damansara features more than 10 different booths selling items made by the autistic youth and their families. The items include cookies, cakes, handicrafts, paintings, jewellery and clothing items.
It was an initiative by the daughter of former prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Nori Abdullah, who is behind We Rock The Spectrum (WRTS), and Autism Cafe Project (ACP) founder Mohd Adli Yahya.
Also present today was United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) representative in Malaysia, Marianne Clark-Hattingh.
Nori, who is the wife of Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, hopes those interested to provide opportunities for autistic youth will come forward to work with her organisation.
