Making transport more accessible for disabled people in the Philippines

Young Voices members in the Philippines have been busy lobbying to make transport more accessible in Manila. They negotiated with the management of the Light Railway Transit to repair escalators and elevators that were not working in various train stations. They have said that they will prioritise the repairs to be finalised by summer 2013. The Metro Rail Transit has also allowed Young Voices to post tarpaulins in all 15 train stations to promote the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabilities and the Young Voices campaign.
