The TV-GAD Learning Center is equipped with ICT equipment and IEC materials to support its services and activities in the community and nearby areas. It is funded by the University Gender and Development office of CLSU.



“Ito pong ating learning center ay open para sa lahat. Kaya po kami naglagay ng babasahin diyan, mga leaflets, brochures, ay para ipamigay. Nagpapasalamat kami kay Kapitan [Benjamin L. Cara] at Kuya Art [Arturo Manipon] dahil binigyan tayo ng space dito [Mushroom Center] which is very accessible dahil dito lagi pumupunta ang mga tao.” Prof. Saturno said, the former Department Head of Agricultural Extension who proposed the establishment of the TV-GAD Learning Center.



“Sa pangangalaga po ng punong barangay at ng asosasyon, nandito po ang learning center natin para ma-update po kayo sa mga makabagong teknolohiya na galing po sa CLSU at sa iba pong agency.” Prof. Diaz added.


The TV-GAD Learning Center is a hub made accessible to the farmers and other clients where they can acquire or adopt new technology protocols appropriate for them for their livelihood and daily consumption.
