2013 National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week

July 17-23, 2013

 Project Brief

 

RATIONALE

For too long, inclusion and involvement of people with disabilities have not been the core concerns of any country’s development efforts.  However, redressing this omission through more inclusive development practices will help to achieve better equity for people with disabilities.

The goal of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (uncrpd) and the Incheon Strategy to Make the Right Real for persons with disabilities in Asia and the Pacific is the realization of a “society for all.”   An inclusive society for all  accommodates diversity of people, their needs, abilities and aspirations.  It is a society that creates an enabling environment where all persons with or without disability realize their basic rights and fundamental freedoms and live a meaningful life

The National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA) being the focal point of the government on disability concerns plays a big role in promoting and sustaining the efforts along this line.

 

To strengthen the advocacy efforts in promoting the rights of persons with disabilities is one of the strategies adopted by NCDA to increase public awareness.

 

LEGAL BASES OF NDPR WEEK CELEBRATION

 

As a State policy enshrined in Proclamation No. 1870 (1979), as amended by Proclamation No. 361 (2000) and Administrative Order No. 35 (2002), the NDPR Week is being commemorated annually every July 17-23, that aims primarily to stimulate public awareness on the issues and problems of disability, thereby encouraging every citizen of the country to take active responsibility in the upliftment of the economic and social conditions of PWDs of our society. It culminates on the birthdate of Apolinario Mabini, the “Sublime Paralytic,” whose bravery and heroic acts during the Philippine Revolution of 1896 has greatly influenced his compatriots in fighting against the Spanish colonization.

 

The NDPR Week celebration has involved the government and the private sectors, the   civil society organizations and the sector of persons with disabilities.

 

Administrative Order No. 35 was issued on May 3, 2002 by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo directing “all heads of departments, bureaus, agencies, government-owned and/or controlled corporations (GOCCs), State universities/Colleges and schools, and other government agencies/instrumentalities to promote and conduct relevant activities in the annual celebration of the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week…”.  Moreover, it requires the mass media and the entire citizenry to extend their wholehearted support and cooperation by conducting specific programs for the celebration.   Most significantly, the Administrative Order directs all government agencies to allocate an amount equivalent to but not less than one percent (1%) of their total budget for the year as stipulated in the General Appropriations Act.  The Administrative Order repealed and modified accordingly previous issuances related to the celebration of NDPR Week.

 

OBJECTIVES

 

The observance of NDPR Week has multi-faceted objectives as follows:

 

  • To stimulate public awareness on disability issues and concerns that will strengthen the involvement of the different government and non-governmental organizations including cause-oriented groups, civil society, self-help groups of persons with disabilities, the academe, professional groups and societies, local government units, business sector, the media and other entities of the society;

 

  • To serve as the vehicle of information for programs being implemented by government agencies and organizations of and for persons with disabilities that adhere to the promotion of the inherent rights and concerns of persons with disabilities;

 

  • To encourage every Filipino citizen to take active responsibility in the upliftment of the economic and social conditions of persons with disabilities in our society, thereby encouraging them to take pro-active roles in nation-building;

 

  • To generate full media support on the celebration and other disability-related issues and concerns that affect persons with disabilities and their families; and

 

  • To develop and strengthen cooperation and partnership between and among the various sectors of the Philippine society for better understanding of disability issues and concerns.

 

LEAD AGENCY AND HOST OF THE CELEBRATION

 

For this year’s celebration it is proposed that the NWC that will be organized by NCDA will be chaired by the Department of Justice.   DOJ will be the presiding officer of all committee meetings and the lead event organizer.

 

THEME OF THE CELEBRATION

 

The theme of this year’s NDPR Week celebration is “Building an Inclusive and Non-Handicapping Environment for Persons with Disabilities.”   The theme was adopted to promote the principles and concepts relevant to disability inclusive development using the Incheon Strategy as its framework.  The theme also extends to advocate for the mainstreaming of disability agenda in all government agencies, non-government organizations, civil society and the public in general.

A sub-theme was also developed as part of the Department of Justice’s activity entitled “Patatagin ang Karapatan sa Katarungan ng Mga Taong May Kapansanan.”   This was agreed on to give emphasis on having access to justice by persons with disabilities in order for them to be part of an inclusive society.

    The following activities were done during the 35th NDPR week-long celebration initiated by CAFEDPA in chronological order:

    July 15 – the PWD leaders joined the Flag Raising Ceremony at the City
    Hall and presented a dance number by DAWN ladies entitled “ La
    Combia”.

    July 16 – “ KAPIHAN sa PIA” – a Press Conference was conducted at the
    PIA Office which was joined in by no less than the director of
    TESDA, the assistant director of DPWH, the focal person of
    DSWD and some PWD leaders where some leading issues and
    concerns of the sector were tackled.

    July 17 – Motorcade around the city was well attended by Government Line
    Agencies, students from the different colleges and universities, as
    well as the different Special Education Centers in the city.
    Several PWD organizations likewise joined with the RTA and the
    50 motor units of the CARANCHO paving the way ending at
    Limketkai Center.

    July 17 – the Holy Mass then followed at the Limketkai Center Rotonda
    and the Opening Program commenced thereafter with some 650
    PWD participants who came from the different SPED Centers,
    PWD organizations in the city. This is where the fund support
    of the GLAs necessitate – feeding some 650 people is a
    headache… but we were able to feed them all and the program
    continued till 5:00 in the afternoon showcasing different PWD
    talents.

    July 17 – Launching of the “Urban and Rural Organic Vegetable Gardening
    for PWDs Contest”, a joint project of the City Government, City
    Agriculture Department, City Social Welfare Office, DA-ATI and
    CAFEDPA. Awarding of prizes will be done on December 3, in
    celebration of the International Day for Persons with Disabilities.

    July 18 – TV Guesting at PAMAHAW ESPESYAL, a local TV show in the
    city, to advocate the week-long celebration together some PWD
    leaders and a representative from the City Social Welfare Office
    who announced the joint project on “ Urban and Rural Organic
    Vegetable Gardening for PWDs Contest”.

    July 18 – “ Pre-Membership Education Seminar” was conducted at the City
    Tourism Hall for the Cagayan de Oro Persons with Disabilities’
    Producers Cooperative (CdO PWD PCo) members and would be
    members. Almost a hundred participants came and became
    members thereafter. It was presented by the CID personnel.

    July 18 & 19 – Accessibility Audits were conducted with reference to the
    Universal Design on July 18 at the different hotels and
    establishments in the city and on July 19 at the Laguindingan
    Airport together with the representatives from DPWH and some
    PWD leaders – Mr. Jerry Bass (on wheelchair), Dr. Enrique Ampo
    (on wheelchair) and Melagros M. Maquiling (on wheelchair, too).
    Some establishments were found to be compliant and partially
    compliant. The Laguindingan Airport was found to be compliant,
    too. However, we suggested that a facility for Changing Diapers
    be added.

    July 20 – a “Symposium on PWD Sensitivity” was held at the Pilgrim
    Christian College Auditorium/AVR which was participated in by
    more than a hundred students from Xavier University, Liceo de

He continues to invite other disabled Zamboangeños have equal opportunity to earn decent income that gives same hope and dignity with other PWDs not only in this city but for the Mindanao wide that branded him as “The Father of PWD’s in Mindanao.”

    At this point in time Kahil is now monitoring all existing PWD’s laws to be fully implement locally especially here in our city as we are belong in a highly urbanized city. He also encouraging to all PWDs with opportunities to fully develop and utilize their abilities by making them realizing the daylight of their full potential and effective social and economic participation on an equal basis with others.
