Gawad Metronian Awarded Educational Fund Assistance to Autism Society Philippines

One of the programs of Gawad Metronian Educational Foundation, Inc. is to provide Community Educational Program Fund Assistance to recognized non-government groups or institutions. Last November 25, the first project proposal was approved for funding by GMEFI. The grantee is Autism Society Philippines [ASP], one of the most stable and active group that promotes and fights for the welfare of persons with autism. Their proposed project is considered pioneering as the final output can be used as model IEP, especially by special teachers in both public and private sped schools.
