The Philippine Federation of the Deaf
DDW Affiliate Organization

Formed in 1997, the Philippine Federation of the Deaf (PFD) works to empower Deaf people, making them independent, united, equal and productive members of society; and also represents Deaf groups in national and international meetings/forums and legislative bodies. PFD provides training to its grass-roots self-help Deaf member- organizations specifically on organizational management, community organization, advocacy techniques, leadership training, values formation and other skills necessary for their development. PFD's activities include close monitoring with government/non-government agencies on the implementation of Deaf people’s basic rights and equalization of opportunities especially on employment to ensure that they are given just and equitable treatment. PFD is a national member of the World Federation of the Deaf.

DDW and PFD are working with the U.S. Department of State on a cross-cultural capacity-building exchange program. For more information, click here.
