Ever pictured working amongst the picturesque rice terraces of the northern Philippines? We’re seeking an Occupational therapist with a passion for special education to work with the communities of Kiangan, Ifugao.

The Center provides services and education to students with disabilities living in Kiangan with a morning program for students aged 5-14 and an afternoon program for students aged 15 and above. Currently the Center caters for 16 students ranging in age from 5-57 with a range of disabilities including Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities and Down Syndrome.
