Gallaudet U lists Philippine Deaf Organizations and Schools

Gallaudet University Logo Danilo Torres, Website Assistant at World Deaf Information Resource Project of Gallaudet University contacted me after I requested him to add our college for the deaf to be listed on their website.

Well, I was fortunate enough that he granted my request. So after he verified our information, he recently included MCCID College of Technology in their list under the “Deaf Schools in the Philippines” category. MCCID is listed together with MC-Southeast Asian Institute for the Deaf and Bohol Deaf Academy.

According to them, their website is an initiative of the Gallaudet University Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS). CIPS created the web site to help people find deaf-related information resources around the world. As the first step in this evolving project, they have gathered contact information for hundreds of organizations and schools in more than 145 countries.

Their main goal is to add more countries when they obtain information for them. In the future, they hope to expand the website to include many more types of deaf-related information resources including links to reports on the living situation of deaf people around the world, links to resources related to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), and links to toolkits and training manuals oriented at deaf people and people who work with them.

To Gallaudet U, thank you for including our school on your list. 🙂

Yay! First 140,000 Visits!

Wow! I reached 140,000th visitors! Despite not updating my blog posts as often as I can, many people still spend time to visit and read my blog posts. 🙂

Since my last Yay! post in August 23, I was only able to blog eight times. The drought even extends to the number of commenters although I received the highest daily visits during this part (576) when I blogged about the discrimination incident in bureau of immigration. So this is the first time I did not blog for more than two months. 😦

Not that I don’t have anything to blog. Heck, I have 31 unpublished or draft posts. I don’t know. I am just probably preoccupied with other things. 😦

Anyway, my blog now has 231 posts with 620 approved comments and 530 tags. My top referrer is still Deafread.com now followed closely by Facebook. Thank you very much to my dear readers for staying patient with me! Now, on to my first 160,000th visitors!
