US Embassy Manila sponsors sports clinic for Pinoys With Disabilities

Last Wednesday July 1, the US Embassy Manila sponsored a sports clinic for Pinoys With Disabilities. This event was an echo of a similar celebration for the US Americans with Disabilities Act. This event saw some of the PBA’s popular basketball guys from the Alaska Aces coaching and mentoring PWD athletes on how to shoot hoops. US Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg himself shot some hoops with the PWD athletes.

PWDs in the BPO Industry

Many Pinoys with Disabilities may not know that the BPO (business process outsourcing) industry has employed so many PWDs, some of them like Mr. Baradi in the video, have climbed the corporate ladder to become managers, supervisors or highly-paid specialists. The problem with many companies in the Philippines is that they have not been treating PWDs like regular employees, meaning they have been doing their fair share of the work but not paid like a non-disabled worker. It is discrimination that have led many PWDs to work menial jobs for lesser pay.
