The Leonard Cheshire Disability Philippines Foundation, Inc. (LCDPFI) is a national disability and development organization operating in Quezon City. It is a non-stock, non-profit, NGO that promotes and protects the rights of persons with disabilities in the Philippines, working towards the attainment of educational equality, economic independence and their active participation in social, cultural, political and civil life. We take a rights-based approach to disability and development and have three core programs – Inclusive Education, Economic Empowerment and our advocacy program for young people, Young Voices.
We are a local partner of Leonard Cheshire Disability, a UK-based NGO dedicated to promoting the rights of people with disabilities all over the world. For more information see the Leonard Cheshire International website – www.lcint.org.
