The Philippine Sports Association for the Differently Abled-National Paralympic Committee (PHILSPADA-NPC) Philippines and the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) will hold the 2012 Philippine Para National Games on February 1-7, 2012 at the Marikina Sports Center, Marikina City.

The UNESCO International Charter of Physical Education and Sports to which the Philippines is a signatory provides that "Every human being has a fundamental right of access to physical education and sports, which are essential for the full development of his personality. The freedom to develop physical, intellectual and moral powers through physical education and sports must be guaranteed both within the educational system and in other aspects of social life."

Paragraph 1 of DECS Memorandum No. 9, s. 1999 states that,

"Sports and other programs in physical fitness have been identified as one of the areas where the United Nations (UN) Standards and Rule on Equalization of Opportunties and Full Participation of Persons with Disabilities (PWD) can be operationalized. The Sports for All Program provides excellent avenue for the inclusion of PWD in both developmental and competitive sports activity."

The Department of Education (DepEd), in consonance with the mandate of the Philippine Constitution, Republic Act (RA) No. 9155 and the above-described UNESCO International Charter, believes that participation in sports shall be made available to all, the young, the aged, the able and the disabled of both sexes.

Thus, to actively provide an avenue for the fulfillment of the foregoing, all regional directors (RDs), schools division/city superintendents (SDSs) and heads of public and private elementary and secondary schools, special education (SPED) teachers and officials are enjoined to support and participate in this National Games. Attendance to this pa games is on official time only.

The organizers of the national games will provide accommodations to the regional participants while transportation expenses may be sourced from the civic-minded citizens or organizations.

The enclosed primer has been prepared by the PHILSPADA-NPC Philippines and the PSC for this undertaking.
