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.
