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.

Airbnb, the global community-driven hospitality platform, has extended its support to the Autism Society Philippines (ASP) through the Airbnb Community Grant. Airbnb Hosts, renowned for being advocates of their local communities, nominated organizations that strive to make a difference in various critical areas. These include environmental sustainability, economic empowerment, ending abuse and exploitation, mental health, and safe housing, among others. The Airbnb Community Grant is a result of this initiative, providing financial support to organizations such as ASP that are dedicated to creating positive change in their communities.

“This grant empowers us to continue our journey towards building a society that embraces diversity and ensures that every person, regardless of their abilities, has the opportunity to thrive." - Lorenzo Juan Sumulong III, National President, Autism Society Philippines

The grant will specifically support two programs of the Autism Society Philippines - ASP PweDay and ASP AUdventures. These initiatives are designed to provide life-changing experiences, foster skills development, and promote socialization in an inclusive and joyful atmosphere. By allocating resources to cover the operational expenses of these initiatives, individuals on the autism spectrum can actively engage in activities that contribute to their personal growth and overall well-being.

As we celebrate the union of Airbnb's Community Grant and the Autism Society Philippines, it is a reminder that when communities come together with a shared vision, incredible transformations can occur. The support from Airbnb reflects a broader commitment to fostering inclusivity, empowerment, and positive change.
