TESDA through its head Secretary Joel Villanueva reached out to our heroes in uniform, initially to the 100 wounded scout rangers currently assigned in First Scout Ranger Regiment in Camp Tecson, San Miguel Bulacan to avail of scholarship for tech-voc courses. Our hero beneficiaries will undergo a different training and this time in trade disciplines in welding, visual graphics and electrical installation. TESDA has identified 300 wounded soldiers for the project and hopes to replicate the said partnership in other areas.
“Kung tutuusin, maliit na bagay lamang po itong aming handog sa inyo kumpara sa sakripisyo at kabayanihang patuloy ninyong ipinamamalas. Kung kaya’t sa ngalan ng bawat Pilipino na nagmamahal sa ating inang bayan at patuloy na nagtatamasa ng kapayapaan, saludo po kaming lahat sa inyo…”
“Sa TESDA, may choice ka.” – SECRETARY JOEL VILLANUEVA
