The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP Cavite Chapters Cited as Top NGO by Municipality of Carmona

By Gerard Joseph Atienza, ASP Bacoor Chapter Member

Autism Society Philippines is once again under the limelight, as ASP Cavite Chapters received a distinguished recognition from the Municipal Government of Carmona, during its town hall meeting titled “Ulat sa Bayan 2012” held last 20 February 2012 at the Hon. Mariano Mapanoo Park, Carmona, Cavite.

ASP Cavite Chapters is among the 10 non-government organizations, which, along with the top taxpayers and the companies with Corporate Social Responsibility projects in the municipality; have helped transform Carmona from a small community to a prosperous and blessed town.

Receiving the award was ASP Bacoor Chapter President and Gobernadora of the Cavite Chapters, Jan Peña, who is now serving as ASP National President. Present with her to witness the awarding was her CWA son, Muneer, Trece Martires Chapter President Lyn Ebuña, and yours truly.

During the “Ulat sa Bayan,” Carmona Mayor Dahlia A. Loyola, together with her equally dedicated husband, District 5 Representative Roy M. Loyola, reported to the community the achievements of the Municipality, and showcased projects which the Municipal Government has accomplished for the past year.

Among their achievements included projects for persons with disabilities (PWD), in which it partnered with ASP when it held a seminar on autism during the recent National Autism Consciousness Week facilitated by Tita Jan Peña.

Last year, both the ASP National Office and the ASP Cavite Chapters, represented by outgoing ASP National President, Grace Adviento and Tita Jan Peña were among the recipients of awards for Top Ten NGO’s in Carmona, being partners in the advocacy for the rights of PWDs, particularly for those with autism.
