Sixteen public elementary and high school teachers from Quezon Province, particularly Mauban, Quezon participated in the training, which was facilitated in by Prof. Amelia Buan, a professor from the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, Iligan City.

In 2008, Congressman Mark Enverga, also provided funds for the program, thereby extending the program’s benefits to teachers in District 1 of Quezon Province.
