Dualtech Center in Canlubang
“All of us, to the extent possible, need to have contact with people who suffer, with the sick, the poor, the lonely, the abandoned.”
-Bishop Alvaro del Portillo-
September 27,1991, Dualtech (www.dualtech.org.ph) inaugurated a temporary facility in the motorpool and office premises of the then Carmel Investments located in Sitio Paikit. The lot served as a temporary facility before the definitive donation to Dualtech was finalized. Gratitude and appreciation to the family of Mrs. Carmen Yulo. While the offices were temporary, the inauguration marked the “start of our full-time presence and hiring of the first employee in Laguna” Mr. Arnolfo Morfe, Dualtech President happily recalls. A beachhead in Canlubang was established.
Dualtech in Canlubang started with offering “community programs to allow the residents especially the youth to qualify for jobs in the factories being built.” Mr. Morfe adds. To the amazement of the staff, the first individuals who showed interest in attending the courses were women.
Today, Dualtech is no longer located in a the rough road of Sitio Paikit. Dualtech is now front and center. Not only is the school campus located in a prime location, Dualtech is primary in pioneering the implementation of the Dual Training System. Its offering of the Electromechanics Technology course is one of its kind in the country. Dualtech is at the forefront in supplying competent well-mannered electromechanics technicians to industry. Thousands of students have passed through its hallowed halls.
September 27 is also the beatification anniversary of Blessed Bishop Alvaro del Portillo (declared “Blessed” in 2014). Bishop Alvaro is the successor of St. Josemaria Escriva the founder of Opus Dei. His concern for the poor and sick led him to urge forward and encourage others to take part in projects for the assistance of the needy, seeking to find a professional remedy for these human needs. During his years as head of Opus Dei, Bishop Alvaro, fostered the setting up of many social and educational projects all over the world, many of them for the benefit of the very needy. (www.opusdei.org) Dualtech takes the words of Bishop Alvaro to heart “All of us, to the extent possible, need to have contact with people who suffer, with the sick, the poor, the lonely, the abandoned.”
In this double celebration, Dualtech cries out “Gratias Tibi Deus…Thanks be to God.”
