Some parents who spoke to the media expressed their happiness and fulfillment in having a talent show that brings out the abilities of their children.

“I have been worried for the past twelve years on how my daughter can grow up to live a productive life but thanks to Afi Antonio foundation, today I can proudly say that the future is bright for Maame Berma and the rest of children living with autism in Ghana,” Mrs. Olivia Awuah said of her 15-year-old daughter living with autism.
