Maricel Candole uplifts Persons With Disabilities as a role model working for an advocacy.

Crafting project concepts to provide rehabilitation/skills training workshops for persons with orthopedic impairment at the Tahanang Walang Hagdanan, she works and advocates for Persons With Disabilities productivity and independence.

Candole, 42, has worked on different industries before working with the local non-profit organization. She has worked as a Business Development Officer and Event Organizer at Team Ventures and has also worked as an English Teacher, Writer and Researcher for Nanoom Foundation and ISF Net Life.

“Job hunting is an easy task but it requires a lot of patience and courage”, she expounded on finishing several and tedious training to get English as Second Language (ESL) and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in order to teach English in different countries. “I am a firm believer that pushing my comfort zone is a key to self betterment.”

Working as Tahanang Walang Hagdanan’s Public Relations and Fund-Raising Manager, she cites getting offered to help out the organization as early as 1997: “This organization gives me the opportunity to help Persons With Disabilities in need. I do creative thinking to develop wonderful project concepts for the benefit of my fellow Persons With Disabilities. I am also an artist by heart, and this particular passion is essential to make this work successful.”, she explains.

Candole lives by with a strong affirmation on things to come, “The best is yet to come. Believe in yourself and you will be surprised with what you can do and what you can become in the future.”


Candole’s personal message to Persons With Disabilities

Always be kind, don’t forget the people who put you on that position and take care to manage personal boundaries. Our society is changing and you will get the respect and love you deserve. People who tackle life’s inevitable ups and downs with patience will have a much better chance of going the distance.

Always be positive and have a strong faith from above.
