M – My little steps reminds me of my tasks
On the things I’ve done from morning until dusk
Dealing with people… I have to wear a mask
To hide my queries, I also have to ask

Y – Yesterday was a mirror of me to reflect and to think deeply
“Had I cared someone… Oppressed and weary
Or had I pushed him down to the level of reality.”

S – Silently, I tried to hold back and ponder…
“Am I really a service provider?”
“Am I really conscious on the needs of others or simply comply with the desires of my employer.”

E – Everyday’s work is routinary
especially when he immersed in the community
Mingling with others is a great opportunity
So we have to do it with the pride and agility

L – Loving our work is inspiring but… perspiring
For it entails hardships and even breathe taking
But if we accept it as life challenging
Then lucky we are to have this wonderful blessing

F – Fearlessly, I must serve with compassion
I have to look-up with God will and vision
Touching others’ lives is a noble mission
Entrusted to me for a good and humble reason.

In line with the theme “Enabling RCDAs as the Gateway to the Local Government Units (LGUs) for Programs and Services for Persons with Disabilities”, this year’s RCDA Joint Conference focuses on the Regional Reporting Template System or RRTS, a structured automated program reporting system designed to capture regional reports from RCDA member agencies, a tool designed to assist the RCDA member agencies in submission/preparation of reports and in the generation and collection of disability data as basis for policy formulation and program development.

In her message, NCDA Acting Executive Director Carmen R. Zubiaga enjoined the RCDAs to give priority focus on the following five (5) areas of concern in coming up with programs and services for persons with disabilities in partnership with the LGUs, MSWDOs, and Federation of Persons with Disabilities:

 Training, Livelihood and Employment
 Accessibility
 Health Services and Rehabilitation
 Auxiliary Social Services
 Education

Dir Zubiaga also enjoined the participants to be more realistic in coming up with projects and services which are beneficial to persons with disabilities at the local level. “The regions should know the needs and how to provide the right assistance to persons with disabilities such as the proper assessment of wheelchairs appropriate to the individual with disability.”, she emphasized.

In the same occasion, DSWD Regional Director Evelyn B. Macapobre who also chairs the RCDA VII, emphasized the importance of data on persons with disabilities in influencing the LGUs to craft programs and services for the sector, and in knowing available services at the national level which could be availed of by persons with disabilities to really be the “gateway” to LGUs for programs/services for the sector. She challenged the participants to influence the LGUs, and to aggressively promote disability prevention and early intervention. She also expressed hope that the next Administration will support the “Sustainable Development Goals” which include some provisions concerning persons with disabilities.

NCDA Deputy Executive Director Mateo A. Lee, Jr. who led in designing the RRTS, responded to the inquiries of the participants during the “Q & A” part of the Conference proper, along with Director Zubiaga.
