Mga Kuwento ng Tagumpay

fjsongsong"Nakakatuwang malaman na maraming kwento ng tagumpay mula sa buhay ng mga nag sipagtapos sa Dualtech, at ngayon ay posibleng madagdagan pa ang mga eto ng mga kwento ninyo. I am sure everyone knows what a corn seed is, when you plant a corn seed on a healthy soil you don't get corn seed, but a corn. It's because the harvest is always greater than what is planted, as long as its nurtured properly. This applies to what we have right now, we are witnesses to the combined product of your dedication, discipline and perseverance of our graduates, the unwavering love and guidance of our dear parents, the commitment and patience of our trainers, learning facilitators in Dualtech and invaluable support of industry partners."  -- Deputy Director General Rebecca Calzado | Represented by Ms. Floramel Joy C. Songsong, Chief (Chief TESDA Specialist)

Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation

“Enabling adult school dropouts to continue studying through Alternative Learning Centers.”

ALS is a parallel learning system that provides a practical option to the existing formal instruction. When one does not have or cannot access formal education in schools, ALS is an alternate or substitute. ALS includes both the non-formal and informal sources of knowledge and skills.

The Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, enabled thousands of school dropouts to restart their education through 19 Alternative Learning Centers. These centers promote the Alternative Learning System (ALS). Some students who finished High School through ALS were given further opportunities by continuing their education in Dualtech.

Reach Out to Young People

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.

Each Family is Unique

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.
