    • Project

      I Belong! Count Me In! project empowers and engages Children with Disabilities and their parents in the manifold activities and events that encourage children and people with disabilities (CWDs) to take steps towards taking a pro-active role in society, giving them the much needed space to ventilate their needs so that society can respond accordingly. Children and people with disabilities (C/PWDs) have a long history of oppression, abuse, shunning and being stigmatised by society. Present times have changed people’s attitudes with regards to C/PWDs, however, a great number are still victimised with inhumane treatments, their lives are devalued, stigmatised as criminals, viewed as sickly, inaccurately tested, hidden in the shadows of their homes and not counted as part of society.

      The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is protecting children who are vulnerable and subject to unpleasant experiences that would have them disadvantaged and easily preyed upon by adults or some of their peers. Specifically, this project pursues:

      • Organisational Development for Ulikid to take on a lead role in pushing for an inclusive legislative agenda in the City of Iloilo. This is through starting with the establishment of community based rehabilitation in the 180 barangays of the city.
      • Life Skills Training for direct beneficiaries – child and parent – since majority of them are economically marginalised.
      • Public Speaking workshops that enable them to speak without fear and have the confidence to discuss their issues with government authorities.
      • Establishing a deep bench of distinctly unique future leaders who will coach other CWDs that they need to be heard and not just seen.

      The above-mentioned strategies create a public space where the cause of CWDs are seriously regarded by duty bearers (government agencies and local executives), stakeholders, allied groups, and the general public.
