WELCOME to the ED Corner!
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the website of National Council on Disability Affairs.
I am Joniro “Don” Fradejas, the Executive Director of NCDA, and I am delighted to see you here in the Executive Director’s Corner.
The National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA) is a national government agency in the Philippines mandated to formulate policies and coordinate the activities of all agencies, whether public or private, concerning disability issues and concerns. Our vision is that all persons with disabilities are able to attain their fullest potential and to become active contributors and participants in nation-building. Our mission is to provide direction to all stakeholders through policy formulation, coordination, monitoring and evaluation of all activities to “MAKE THE RIGHTS REAL” for all.
NCDA’s objectives are to formulate and advocate policies according to internationally and nationally accepted standards in the areas of prevention of the causes of disability, rehabilitation and equalization of opportunities for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs); to develop, promote and regularly review the
national plan for the prevention, rehabilitation, full participation and equalization of opportunities for persons with disabilities, to coordinate, monitor and evaluate the implementation of policies, plans and programs and to advocate/promote respect for rights and privilege of persons with disabilities.
Through this website, you can learn more of the mandate, the different initiatives undertaken, and also meet our hardworking team.
We will appreciate to receive comments and feedback from you as we delve into NCDA’s unwavering commitment for public service excellence. Let us work together to protect the rights and empower the persons with disabilities. If you have queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you!
Thank you for visiting! We hope that you would find our website informative, beneficial and interesting.
