Graduates, are you R.E.A.D.Y.?

cl-atayde-2019Ang tanong ko sa ating graduates, handa na ba kayo sa pagharap nyo sa inyong kinabukasan? Are you ready to overcome any hardships that you may encounter? Ready ba kayong tanggapin na mahirap ito, pero i-oovercome nyo? Ngayon, pagdating ng panahon na kaya na ninyo, handang handa ba kayong tumulong sa pamilya?

-- Ms. Carmen Linda Atayde, Executive Director | SM Foundation, Inc.

When Vision Meets Passion

good-gov-2019“Good governance and responsible citizenship’: this is the tagline I use for my advocacy.”

- Jesus P. Estanislao


The Spaniards came to colonize the Philippines thinking of gold and spices. Christianization of the native was an important goal but not an urgent one. The Spanish colonizers wanted to get rich first.


This bit of history was cited by Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, in a forum on “Good Governance and Its Sustainability: Towards Dream Philippines”, last April 10, at Whitewoods Convention and Leisure Hotel in Silang Cavite.

Learning How to Work

kevin-cagatcagatTinuruan kami ng Dualtech katulong ang mga partner companies kung paano magtrabaho. Na ang pagtatrabaho ay hindi parusa o pabigat, kundi pagpapahayag ng kakayahan ng tao na mapagbuti, makalikha, makatulong sa lipunan sa pamamagitan ng kanyang pagsisikap at paggamit ng kanyang mga talento o mga katangian. At sa tapat na paggawa tayo’y makararanas ng kagalakan at masusuklian din ito ng pambuhay sa sarili at sa aming mga pamilya. Kami ay tumutulong sa pagbuo ng isang matibay at malusog na lipunan at bayan. -- Kevin C.

These youth who have nearly forgotten to dream but upon learning the opportunities at Dualtech Center and the assistance given by SM Foundation were inspired to hold on to their aspirations and strive to be better individuals for their families in the provinces.
