“This center aims to develop the PWDs capacity through a comprehensive vocational rehabilitation program which will enable them to acquire practical skills for eventual employment, that is why we provide various courses ranging from massage therapy, electronic motor repair, computer electronics, basic sewing, furniture and cabinet making, commercial cooking and cosmetology,” said Tahanlangit.

“Here in AVRC, we also teach your children or relatives important life skills like proper hygiene, time management, socialization and even Alternative Learning System (ALS) in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd),” Tahanlangit underscored.

She further emphasized that the family support is also important in the rehabilitation of PWDs.
