 ROSALES- “Age is not a hindrance to learn new things and skills. In these times that computer literacy is needed, acquiring the basic computer skills will help us a lot in our work and in communicating with friends and even clients.”

These words were expressed both by Josie Damaso, a project staff of the municipal government here and  former Councilor Romeo Sim.

Damaso and Sim were among the 170 newly graduates of the 117th Commencement Rites of Basic Computer Course at the APEC Mobile Digital Opportunity Center on January 4 held at the Robert Estrella Sr. Memorial Stadium here.

The computer course was sponsored by the municipal government of this town, Abono Partylist, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Chinese Filipino Business Club (CFBC), and the Fil-Chi Love and Care Foundation Inc. (FCLCI).

There were two batches of the said course- Batch 355 with 92 trainees started on November 13 until December 2, while Batch 356 with 78 trainees started on December 4 up to December 23, last year.

During the commencement rites, FCLCFI President Bella Huang recalled how they were able to put up the program and established the Foundation with her husband Billy Huang in 2012.

She said  the mobile technology vans, which are five in all, were purchased after they were able to succeed in their business.

“This is a way for us to repay the Filipinos. Kami ang mga Chinoys na tumutulong sa mga Pinoys,” Bella Huang said.

She exhorted the graduates to persevere and wait for opportunities, and don’t put their lives into the hands of others.

“ Baguhin ninyo ang pananaw sa buhay. (Change your life’s perspectives),” Huang said.

Abono Partylist Chair Rosendo O. So likewise extended his thanks to the FCLCFI, CFBC, TESDA, and the municipal government of Rosales through Mayor Susan P. Casareno as partners of the said endeavor.

“We will continue to assist our graduates. If possible we will look for opportunities for them to be employed. We will train other beneficiaries in the other towns of Pangasinan after this,” So said.

Mayor Casareno expressed her thanks to the sponsors of the basic computer course and urged the graduates to make use of their newly acquired skills to improve themselves and as a means to look for livelihood opportunities.
