Nate Foundation was formed to bridge the gap by promoting inclusion of children and youth with Intellectual and developmental disabilities into society. Inspired by the story of the life and experience of a young cerebral palsy and autistic boy named Nathan and fondly called Nate, the Nate Foundation was established to work closely with key partners to ensure that IDD is integrated into communities, public and private structures through advocacy, cultivating understanding, knowledge management, and empowerment.
