Let your dream become a reality-A A +A
Thursday, May 22, 2014
“MY long term dream is not just to put up a school but to help students pave their way to their own definition of success,” Amy Bendisula, PSST School Director, said.
Kagay-anons are not just equipped with intellect but also the skills standardized internationally, even as the Philippines’ most competitive city led the country.
“It does not mean that there is a high rate of poverty in the Philippines that these qualified students could not have the dignity of having offered to great companies or could learn skills competent globally,” Bendisula defended.
Philippine School of Science and Technology (PSST) has served the city’s people for two years now, offering courses of Bartending NCII, Housekeeping NCII, Food & Beverage Services NCII, Health Care Services and Pharmacy Services. It has paved the way for hundreds of believers of success.
Inspiring the less privileged to go beyond the worldly expectations is what PSST has been doing since then.
With the partnership of Tesda and DSWD, different technical schools in Cagayan de Oro can cater these students.
Marisa Gamayon, Jesebelle Dawa, Rose Anne Quibong, Susan Belo and Irene Abecia are just a few of the many 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) beneficiaries who aspire to achieve their visions that today became a reality and be of inspiration toward others to do the same. All five beneficiaries are in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as housekeepers.
“I am now in Delma Island, Abu Dhabi City as a female cleaner of NCE Company (New Cleaning Establishment). Dako kaayo akong pag-pasalamat sa DSWD, CSWD sa gihatag nga scholarship sa amo para maka-eskwela sa eskwelahan nga accredited sa TESDA og aron among makab-ot ang mga pangandoy sa kinabuhi,” Quibong testified.
“Malaki ang pasasalamat ko sa PSST dahil sila ang naging daan ko upang makamit ko ang pangarap ko sa buhay at magkaroon ng maginhawang pamumuhay. Ito lang ang masasabi ko kung may TESDA may pag-asa,” Irene Abecia, housekeeper in UAE, added.
Girlie Fuertes, also a beneficiary, flew to Saudi Arabia and worked as a housekeeper in an orphanage. Through her perseverance and grit, she was promoted as an office staff.
These are some of the testimonies this institution has greatly imparted to its students.
PSST only requires determination from its students, and does everything else for them.
“Monetary crisis is not a hindrance from reaching success. Let your dreams inspire you to become more of yourself. PSST will not just here to prepare you skillfully but we are here to be a part of your family, your success and your better future,” Bendisula said.
