This blog has not been updated for a week now. Firstly, I have been asking for advice at the CareCure forum on some aspects of the TiLite ZRA Series 2 that I was not sure about apart from scouring for more information from the Internet. I am almost done with this pending quotation for shipping and some extra parts that I am ordering together with the wheelchair.
Secondly, I am currently attending the 1st Regional Senior Disability Equality Training (DET) Trainers’ Training since Monday. There are four of us undergoing training as facilitators for DET TOT, namely Ms. Saowalak Thongkuay and Mr. Sawang Srisom from Thailand and Ms. Eunice Marie Gato-Factor from Philippines. This course is conducted by Dr. Kenji Kuno of the Japan International Cooperation Agency Malaysia (JICA).
Running concurrently with the course beginning today is the 2nd Regional Training of Trainers on Disability Equality Training (DET) where the four of us double up as co-facilitators with Dr. Kuno for sixteen participants from the Asia Pacific region. These two courses are as interesting as they are tiring as we have been attending full-day sessions that will continue until next Friday. Until then, updates will be irregular.
