what our clients say...

“I am so blessed to have been a part of this training. As the memorandum has been circulated to our school; i had this feeling of uncertainty whether i will be able to produce the desired output because i had a zero knowledge on IEC production. Since, our school is one of the recipient of the adopt-a-school program and being the teacher in-charged; i did not hesitate to participate in this training because for me, this will help us in designing our advocacy materials especially that our school is among that will offer senior high school. With my participation, my expectation wasn't futile since ATI-RTC 7 equipped us not just on the material things that we need but on the knowledge and skills that we can apply. To ATI, thank you so much, more power and more collaborations from you. To my co-participants who are very supportive and very participative, until next time.”
