THE SULU State College on Tuesday unveiled its Tech4ED learning center from the Department of Information and Communications Technology.

A Tech4ED center aims to harness Information and Communications Technology to help alleviate poverty in the Philippines.

The DICT donated 6 sets of computers and installed a free wifi zone to help the college with its duties.

The school said the project will enable it to provide quality service.

“The other parts of the country have good access to [the] internet and Sulu is now already coping with addressing the needs of having [an] internet connection,” SSC said on Facebook.

“We are very much grateful to Regional Director of DICT Mindanao Cluster 1, Maria Theresa Camba, for making all of these possible. To our partner from WestMinCom, Col. Lamber Jonathan, and to our college President, Prof. Charisma Ututalum who relentlessly sought support to include the college on these projects. Thank you for making SSC connected close to the world,” it added.

Officials from SSC, DICT, Philippine Army, Coast Guard, and Air Force attended the launch of the project.
