Tahanang Walang Hagdanan

Tahanang is a home and livelihood project for people with disabilities, founded in 1973 by Belgian nun Sr. Valeriana Baerts. The name is Tagalog for “The House With No Steps” and the fully wheelchair accessible site is now home to more than 90 people with disabilities who manufacture wheelchairs and other mobility aids, educational toys and games and a range of handicrafts. There is also a pharmaceutical packaging facility onsite, but I wasn’t allowed to take photos there.
