MCCID Designs Government Website

\"Sir

After nearly four months of negotiation, the National Council on Disability Affairs, an official government agency tasked to oversee and monitor disability related programs and issues in the Philippines, has finally entrusted MCCID College of Technology to design their official website.

NCDA Chairperson Rosie Lovely Romulo, through the recommendation of Executive Director Geraldine Ruiz, has approved the complete re-designing of their website. In the Memorandum of Agreement signed by both parties, NCDA will pay an undisclosed amount to MCCID College to design the website that must be completed within ninety working days.

NCDA Technical Cooperation Division Chief Rizalio Sanchez reasoned out that they selected MCCID because of their:

  • Proven expertise in the field of web accessibility by participating in various NCDA-NCC led workshops, 3rd recipient of Disabled Friendly Website Award and a member of PWAG and international Guild of Accessible Web Designers (GAWDS);
  • Web designing experience by creating working websites for more than 20 non-government organizations;
  • Long time partnership with NCDA on its numerous activities;
  • Champion deaf web designers;
  • Member of the PWD (Deaf) sector;
  • As a non-profit academic institution

Last April 13, Sir Jojo Esposa Jr., MCCID Training Director presented the Web Development Project Plan to the officials and employees. He also thanked the agency for entrusting MCCID to do the project. He explained that the proceeds of the work will go directly to the school\’s scholarship fund especially to support deaf students from the provinces. Deaf alumni will be tasked to do the project under the supervision of Sir Ervin Reyes.

National Council on Disability Affairs is the national government agency mandated to formulate policies and coordinate the activities of all agencies, whether public or private, concerning disability issues and concerns. It is formerly an attached agency of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. It is now under the Office of the Philippine President.

    Greetings in Christ Jesus our Lord!

    We have seen the website you design for NCDA, and we would like to know if you are also willing to partner with an NGO like us which is serving our indigenous cultural communities, particularly the Dumagat/Remontado of Tanay, Rizal. Should you wish to know more details, we will be glad to visit your office to discuss further information on a possible partnership with the Philippine Center for Indigenous Missions (PCIM), Inc.

    It will surely be a great help if you can design a website for PCIM and mainstream our indigenous peoples in the information highway. Please feel free to call us or send us an SMS at 0928520-3603.

    May God richly bless you!

    Good day po! We are very willing to assist you in re-designing your website. We can also design your website so that it would be standards compliant and 100% accessible to persons with disabilities. But we have to tell you in advance that we will be charging our services because we will assign a deaf web designer to do it. The service fee will go to him. Thank you.
