A total of twenty faculty, staff and social worker students attended the basic sign language training conducted by MCCID Training Director Jojo Esposa from August 19 – 22, 2009 at Life Renewal College in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

MCCID head was invited by Aborlan School for the Deaf Director and Pastor Isagani Sta. Ana together with his wife Mrs. Sarah Sta. Ana. The activity was part of the Community Based Rehabilitation Program (CBR) of Deaf Evangelistic Alliance Foundation, Inc. (DEAF) in partnership with Christian Blind Mission (CBM). The sign language training was aimed to equip the participants with the proper sign language skill as well as become more aware about the Filipino deaf\’s culture. The sign language systems and common problems encountered by workers for the deaf were also deliberated and discussed during post-workshop time in the evening.

Aside from the training, Sir Jojo together with MCCID Deaf Coordinator, Sir Ervin Reyes had an opportunity to visit the School for the Deaf in Aborlan, Palawan. The 5-hectare school compound is complete with boys and girls dormitories, school canteen, elementary and high school buildings, basketball courts, mini-park, rice and crop farms as well as library and CBR office. The Deaf School is being run by the able leadership of Ptr. Sta. Ana and his wife together with generous financial supports from Lamoiyan Corporation, CBM and Liliane Foundation Philippines.

Sir\’s Jojo and Ervin were also able to visit the various popular tourist destinations of Palawan including the world renown Underground River. Through this activity, the team will be able to promote the province and entice foreign visitors especially the Persons with Disabilities to make Palawan as their destination of choice.
