The Mitsui Bussan do Brasil Foundation decided to support the "Projeto de Integração Pró-Autista" in Brazil. This projected was launched in 2006 by the Beneficência Nipo-brasileira de São Paulo – Enkyo and the Mitsui Bussan do Brasil Foundation will donate 60,000(sixty thousand) reais a year to cover the expenses for the program operation.

There is an autistic child every one hundred children in Brazil, but it is very difficult to educate them under the actual social structure and becomes a burden to not only their family but also to the society, which has become serious challenge to the society.

This is a program adopting “Daily Life Therapy” developed by Ms. Kiyo Kitahara, founder of Musashino Higashi Gakuen, and it is aimed for the autistic children to live an independent social life. This program has attracted Brazilian society’s attention as an education program contributing a lot to Brazilian society.

We hope that support by the Mitsui Bussan do Brasil Foundation will encourage support to this program by others and that the circle of support to this program will grow.
