Raphael Domingo facilitates opportunities to learn and communicate with the Deaf through Filipino Sign Language.

Domingo, 40, is the Head of the Learner-Centered Education Access for the Deaf , a Unit under the Center for Education Access and Development at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. He also studied Postgraduate education at the American University, Washington, DC, USA.

Prior to his current job in Benilde, Domingo worked for several organizations for the Deaf such as an Advocacy Worker (1997)/Finance Administrator (2003-2007) at Philippine Federation of the Deaf, Business Operations at Catholic Ministry to Deaf People, Regional Coordinatior for Asia Pacific (2007-2008) at World Federation of the Deaf and Swedish National Association of the Deaf, and a Liason for Case Monitoring (2010-2011) at Philippine Deaf Resource Center.

Looking back on how he was able to get the job, he shared: “It was difficult to look for a job after I finished my college degree. I was 34 years old then and I did not want to be choosy because of financial considerations. It was a real blessing when my current director offered me this job.”

Domingo currently conducts planning, monitoring, implementation, and documentation of the Filipino Sign Language program and its effect on faculty training and on the student curiculum.

De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde offers pioneer degree programs and has its own School for Deaf Education and Applied Studies. With the school philosophy focusing on learner-centered education, Domingo shares his personal goals are close to his line of work: “My work in Benilde motivates me to pursue further doctorate studies in linguistics and prove that Filipino Sign Language is also a language of daily communication, not a tool of communication.”

Domingo’s personal message to Persons With Disabilities

Getting a full-time career is very difficult because of barriers but don’t ever give up regardless of your disability.

More importantly, you should perform efficiently and effectively by working hard and your efforts will be recognize
