EDUCATION IS AN INALIENABLE RIGHT
Eleven years ago, Nina’s son and Rohan's Brother, Niam, was diagnosed with Autism. Nina, Ravi and Rohan travelled a long and emotional journey where they witnessed and experienced many hardships with availability, equality and access to education for Niam. As many other families , the family struggled to find resources and often made curriculum at home until the wee hours of the night. Everyone contributed to helping out. As Niam was growing up, Rohan and Nina recognized the need for a free educational platform and a functional skills curriculum that looked at teaching language and literacy, independent daily living skills and vocational skills training for this vulnerable segment of society. Access to education is an alienable human right. In an effort to create free and affordable access to education and to change the way education is accessed the social enterprise Able2learn Inc. was established.
What is important to note: Early Intervention it is not about the cure but The Potential.

Niam is the inspiration for this project. When we first dived head first into the world of Autism, we were shocked at the high cost of therapy, limited access to Education and the number of road blocks. We were not alone. We witnessed many families struggling emotionally and financially. We decided a few years later that I wanted to create a e-learning site to help parents and public school teachers, especially those who were left with little or no supports. Niam is progressing every day and, we are proud of his achievements whether small or big. Niam was featured on Global News, CBC National, Samsung Canada and many more, for his achievements in abstract painting. Please visit his website www.niamjain.com to see his beautiful paintings. Niam is selling his paintings not just in Canada but in the United States as well. Niam is an example of what access to education can do in bringing a person to employment with supports.
Although Niam has limited speech and comprehension, early intervention, accommodation can bring our children to be gainfully employed. Niam's paintings are selling to collectors all over the world. Dive into Niam's World.
He has supported me endlessly, been patient, and generously contributed to this campaign. Able2learn would not be here today if it was not for him. A big round of applause for Ravi.
