ICare4Autism CEO and founder Dr. Joshua Weinstein met with Kwame Fosu, Director of Policy and Legal Affairs for the Rebecca Project for Justice to discuss our Ghana initiative.

Mr. Fosu, was referred to ICare4Autism by the Acting UN Ambassador from Ghana, Philbert Johnson. As a health and foreign policy expert for Africa, Fosu also works as a consultant advising African officials, U.S. government officials, and NGOs protecting African families. He was invited, and agreed, to join our committee on African Americans with autism.

Mr. Fosu will assist in our efforts regarding Ghana helping ICare4Autism reach the Ghanaian government so that we can increase awareness of autism in Ghana, upgrade training and facilities, and expand the overall knowledge base of caregivers and educators.

Additionally, acting as a conduit, the policy expert will facilitate relationships with other US and Ghanaian governmental officials to raise awareness and support for our Workforce Initiative. Mr. Fosu is a strong advocate and supporter of Ghana and our efforts there and around the globe. Back in 2008, his desire to help the underserved drove him to found the Educating Girls to Empower Girls (EG2) initiative in Ghana.

ICare4Autism’s representative Morgan Jacobs will also be working with Mr. Fosu as he will be helping coordinate her trip to serve the autism community at Echoing Hills Village Academy. Here, Ms. Jacobs will lend her expertise as an ABA teacher and doctoral student at Columbia Teacher’s College to the community through her educational workshops. Her workshops will address professionals and parents, enabling them to deliver the most effective, modern therapies to children in underserved communities and helping parents become more aware of these therapies.
