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 in 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 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 a 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 in your list. 🙂
