AKAPIN appeals for Your Involvement in OUR CAUSE

AKAPIN was born out of a vision for a disabled friendly Philippines. In spite of our meager resources pooled together, we started moving to work for our vision. We need volunteers to join us and be one with us in commitment to make a brighter for younger generation of persons with disabilities( PWDS)

How to Help

There are several ways to get involved with the campaign. For example, you can:

* Help plan an event - We are conducting orientation on disability issues for parents, support groups, local officials, volunteer groups and persons with disabilities who are not yet involved in the movement.

* Distribute literature. We have campaign materials ready for distribution. You can also help by texting oe emailing your friends to reserve their votes for AKAPIN  

* Volunteer to do some works in our office.

* Speak at an event. We need people who can easily communicate our cause and vision to the public;  

* Make a donation. We need funds to support our movement.
