NORFIL’s Enabling Communities for Inclusion (ECFI) Program for children and youth with disabilities conducted disability sensitivity workshop and training on disability concepts, laws and inclusive education to 194 DepEd district supervisors, school heads, and teachers.
With support from Australian Aid and CBM Global, NORFIL has been working for years to promote inclusive education with core strategies of building the capacity of teachers, administrators, communities and families of children with disabilities and facilitating the accessibility of schools’ built environment.
