Tokyo Tales – Day 12: Thursday, January 26, 2006

Ito-san, Nakahara-san and Akiyama-san took turns to lecture to us on Roles of PWD Staff and non-PWD Staff, Consultation Services and Social Movement and Service Organisation respectively. These theoretical lectures, although seemingly dreary, is important for us to manage an Independent Living Centre effectively. It was also the day the two wheelchairs from JIL were brought to the Human Care Association. We will be transporting these two back to Malaysia on the same flight back next week.
