To See is to Believe
The referral or suggestion of one foundation to another, bears fruit that benefited students from Tacloban.
When the Consuelo Foundation learned about a visit of Dualtech to Tacloban, they invited Streetlight to come over to check what Dualtech could offer. That was the first encounter of Streetlight with Dualtech. Three staff from Streetlight attended the orientation and they were amazed with the values formation that a trainee could inherit. Streetlight was also convinced of the platform of being employed after two years of studies.
“Angelicum Foundation gave me a chance to continue my studies which, I thought, would just be a dream.” -- Celso Aguaviva, Scholar
Engr. Andy Malihan, one of Dualtech mentors, introduced Angelicum Foundation to Dualtech. The Angelicum Foundation is the CSR arm of the Ortoll Group of Companies. Last May 2016, Mr. Jorge Ortoll, a majority stockholder of Ortoll Group of Companies visited Dualtech and was able to witness students in action and the facilities. Interviewing students, he saw their determination to continue their education. The resolve of each student mattered a lot to the Ortoll’s.

On September 04, 2016, SM Foundation invited partner technical schools on its first Tech-Voc general assembly in SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City. From its usual number of 100 scholars annualy, SM made it to 1,000 in 2016 as they believe that graduates of Tech-Voc get immediate jobs and have bigger opportunity to be uplifted from poverty. SM Group of Companies also sees great demand for skilled manpower in the country and abroad.
Twelve (12) companies held job-fairs at Dualtech Center in Canlubang, Calamba City to fill hundreds of job openings.

These scholars were placed to Dualtech partners for the next phase of training where actual work exposure and advanced skills are to be provided.
The DTS program outweigh the cost of training the student/trainee.
TESDA and Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) – Human Resources Development Foundation conducted a study about the Cost and benefit Analysis of the Dual Training System in The Philippines. Dualtech and its partner companies were among the DTS stakeholders that provided empirical data.
To reach out to less-fortunate young people in other parts of the country, Dualtech Center's Community Relations Office had joint campaigns with several public/private institutions and parishes.
Schools like St. Paul University Surigao (Surigao City, Surigao Del Norte), Aliaga National High School (Aliaga, Nueva Ecija), Co Tek Chun National Trade School (Pagadian City, Zamboanga Del Sur), and the Department of Education – ALS Dept. (Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu) gathered interested male students done in their respective schools to attend Dualtech's orientation.
If man is made to the image and likeness of God, the most natural grouping of men must somewhat follow the grouping of God in His inner being. In our human terms, we call this grouping as communion. Naturally we, as human persons, have this communion, which is first established in the union of man and woman in marriage. Following the natural course of events – as willed by our Creator--, this union bears offspring and the grouping is called family. It is the most basic grouping found in the human society. It is the most natural thing. People are not taught to form families. They just follow nature. People fall in love and come together. Then, children come out naturally. The bond among themselves is so strong that they live a community of life.
