The plaque was awarded to the agency during the 34th National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week at SM Mall of Asia Open Air last July 23 at SM Music Hall, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City spearheaded by the National Council on Disability Affairs.

Before the ceremony, NCDA Chief Nelia De Jesus gave a brief backgrounder on the awards. PWAG President Jojo Esposa Jr. also explained some important features of an accessible website.

Prior to the event, a series of web accessibility trainings were held including the one participated in by DOJ Web Developer Harold Tubangi last 2012. He even made a report on the progress of his agency’s website to the trainees.

Less than a year later, the site was redesigned to accommodate Persons With Disabilities.
