I LOVE CEBU and Beyond . . .

Cebu's current events, best sellers, interesting product lines.

CEBU BREAKS BARRIERS, OPENS DOORS, EMPOWERS PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES, Marks July as PWD Awareness Month

“CELEBRATE DIVERSITY BY PROMOTING DIGNITY, RESPECT AND INCLUSIVENESS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES” is the mantra by which proponents uphold equal participation of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) or differently-abled persons, in today’s dynamic society.

 

???????????????????????????????

 

As the Department of Social Welfare & Development Region 7, conducted the Employers’ Forum last week , hopes were high in encouraging business owners to employ persons with disabilities. Verily, they were right when entrepreneurs expressed willingness to train PWDs on skills required, give on-the-job trainings and eventually hire PWDs based on performance.

Companies who joined the forum included :

  • Support Save Solutions, Inc.
  • Central Lumber, Inc.
  • Ruiz Derma
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • Jobs Ville Recruitment Agency
  • ePerformance Contact Center & BPO
  • FORCE Manpower Services

Hopefully, this advocacy to mainstream PWDs in the programs and services of government and private sector will gain wide acceptance.

Corollary to this, is the conduct of Sensitivity Trainings and Simulation Activities , to prepare current working staff and accept PDW workers’ entry into the work environment.

This year’s theme “The Gift of Talent & Trustworthiness of PWD: Passports to Development”, hopes to promote the capabilities, skills and talents of PWDs to improve/uplift their economic status.
