tesdaOn two different occasions, TESDA Calabazon presented plaques of appreciation to Dualtech Center as its partner in promoting and implementing the Dual Training System in the region.

On September 05, in LIMA Park Hotel, TESDA Region IV-A and five (5) Provincial Offices  recognized its partners during its “Gabi ng Pasasalamat” appreciation event that helped them intensify various programs to strengthen the technical education and made its lasting impact to many of its beneficiaries. For the regional level, Dualtech Center was one of the honorees. Former Regional Director Florencio Sunico Jr. said, “Ang gabing ito ay para sa aming mga katuwang sa pagpapalaganap ng technical vocational training dahil kung wala sila ay hindi magiging tagumpay ang TESDA Calabarzon sa pagganap sa tungkulin. Ang pagkilala sa aming mga partners ay isang uri ng pasasalamat dahil sa inyo mas epektibong naiipatupad ng ahensya ang mga programa para sa ikabubuti ng publiko,"

Lao Foundation and Its Business of Helping Others

LaoTo eradicate poverty and deliver accessible education have always been a challenge in the development of the country. Across generations, leaders vowed to bring the poverty index down, but the problem remained daunting. Thus, many Filipinos are deprived of education, especially youth and children from poor sectors. 

Luckily, a significant number of organizations dedicate themselves to provide avenues and opportunities for low- income families to access the kind of education they deserve. These foundations work hard to ensure that the poorest of the poor will not be looked over or treated unfairly when it comes to education opportunities. 
On top of the list is the Lao Foundation (LFI),  DSWD- and PCNC- accredited corporate social responsibility arm of D&L Group of Companies. The Lao Foundation has been operating for 10 years now,  and has 11 partner organizations. 

Dualtech Training Center is one of them. 

When Opportunity Knocks

In other words, you will be late.” Yan po ang salitang sinasabi sa akin ng aking ama noong ako ay high school pa lang. Noon ay binalewala ko lang ang kanyang sinabi, pero ngayon ko lang naisip na tama pala ito. Kailangan nating kumilos bago mahuli ang lahat. -- Floro P.

“My strength is on reliance in my faith so that I don’t get carried away from the strong currents of this river. But, be assured that I will not drown if I continue to trust God.”

Batch Representative John Mark D. Mata, a Bukidnon native and Angelicum Foundation scholar, describes his life journey as a fickle river during his graduation speech. Quiet one moment, raging the next. He continues to credit his achievements at Dualtech, and his strides in his chosen profession, to his faith—a beacon of light that guides him to the path he needs to take.
