Handicap International, through the REBUILD Project in Baras, Rizal (50 km from Manila), celebrated the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on December 3.
A rights and livelihood project, the REBUILD Project organized an interactive exhibit composed of miniature buildings (or scale models) with accessible facilities. The displays also included colorful posters on the rights of people with disabilities.
Baras Mayor Kathryn Robles graced the event and called on everyone to recognize the dignity and capabilities of persons with disabilities.
A motorcade around town also made the celebration more festive. It featured a jingle advocating an inclusive society.
