Be an entrepreneur tomorrow…!

Thanks to the management of Technology Resource Center (TRC) most specially to Director General Tony Ortiz and Dr. Rosalinda “Alo” Laxamana for all the support given to our organization.

We were given the chance to attend and see the potentials of the training provided by TRC and somehow interviewed some students and trainers.
