CFC ANCOP, fully embracing programs that will support the development of skilled individuals, partnered with the Don Bosco Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Center to cater to scholars who will take up technical and vocational courses. 


Don Bosco TVET rector, Rev. Fr. Gaudencio Carandang Jr., SDB, CFC ANCOP President Rudy Gaspillo and ANCOP Education Program Head Efren Tompong forged the partnership via the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement on January 26, 2018 at the Don Bosco TVET Center in Tondo, Manila. ANCOP Canada President Ricardo Cuenca and wife Irma also graced the event.


The MOA embodies the commitment of ANCOP Canada to increase the number of scholars to 50 from the 16 existing scholars in the center. CFC ANCOP sees the TVET Center as a tool for productivity enhancement, and ultimately poverty reduction in the country. 


Through the TVET Center, the students’ skills and capabilities will be honed through proper training and hands-on practice, giving the students excellent skill sets that will make them readily employable in a shorter amount of time. CFC ANCOP hope to establish wider networks among institutions with TVET programs in order to create opportunities in aligning towards that direction.


Some of the courses offered in Don Bosco TVET are Office System Management, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Automotive Service, Electrical Installations and Maintenance, and Refrigeration and Aircon Repairs and Maintenance.


One of the ANCOP scholars from Don Bosco TVET, John Henrich Malazarte, expressed his gratitude to both organizations for helping him and promised to do his best in studying. Later on, Malazarte intends to pay it forward by sponsoring a scholar as well. 


Fr. Carandang extended his gratitude to ANCOP Canada for the sponsorship, highlighting that the support in education can change the lives of poor families after the scholars have graduated and become employed.

Aside from the existing program, CFC ANCOP is looking at catering to the education of parents through TechVoc education. The project, named TVETP (Technical and Vocational Education Training for Parents) will be offered to the parents of ANCOP scholars, whether CFC or non-CFC members, aged 40 years old and below.(Diana Mendoza)
