ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya (ABLK), a public service arm of ABS-CBN Corporation, initiated a project to raise funds for scholarship and sponsorship to Dualtech students. These young aspirants come from different backgrounds but with a common goal – to be educated and eventually get a job.
On 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,"
To 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.
