School-to-school project promotes sharing

Young Voices in the Philippines has long been involved with an inclusive youth centre in the capital, Manila. This award-winning centre hosted wheelchair basketball and dancing on wheels demonstrations during its ‘school-to-school project’ that brings together young people with and without disabilities. The Young Voices spoke about disability issues with students, teachers, local government councillors and the mayor to raise their profile among legislators and fellow citizens.
