Organization Name: St. Martin de Porres Special School


Meeting the educational and holistic needs of children and young adults who have hearing impairment, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism and other learning difficulties.


St. Martin de Porres Special School was established in 1966, founded by Mrs. Concepcion Rodil Martires, Ph.D. The school was originally a division of the Cebu Psychological and Research Center (CPRC) which was owned by Mrs. Martires. The School started with four pupils who had "special needs". In 1968, it was separated from the CPRC and took on the name St. Martin de Porres Special School. In 1970, the land, building, equipment and materials were donated by Mrs. Martires to the school, through the "Special Child Association of Cebu Inc”. From 1970 to now, the Officers and Board Members of the Special Child Association of Cebu Inc. compose the policy and decision-making body responsible for the overall administration of the school.

The school is funded through various kinds of donations. Families who can afford are requested to donate any amount to the school for their son(s) or daughter(s) who are admitted. About one-half to two-thirds of the entire student population each year come from indigent families.
