We started with a very simple belief: every child is a star. With encouragement and understanding, anyone can realize their own special talents and shine. When we come together as one we can light up the sky.

Children with autism are all around us – it’s a condition that may affect as many as 1 in 50 children in the UAE.

While awareness is growing in the United Arab Emirates, children and families affected with autism still battle stigma and misinformation everyday.

We wanted to make a difference. And this dream led to the development of The Autism Project, an initiative started by Her Highness Sheikha Shamsa bint Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to raise awareness of Autism in the United Arab Emirates. Through the power of theatre, dance, music and performance, we provided a safe and positive space for children and families in the UAE from all different cultures and backgrounds.

As One became a documentary film, which tells a story of joy and hope, and celebrates the unique gifts of these very special young people.

We welcome you to join us on our journey.
