Our students success stories

Below is what our students have to say about us.

Smiley faceThe Bamboo Fundamentals Training under Ar. Jed Michael De Guzman who was trained in the Bamboo University in Bali is an amazing experience. Having to live in the Bamboo House in Manolo Fortich for 9 days and studying the importance of bamboo in sustainability and bamboo from planting, propagation, clump management, to harvesting, to treatment and actual handling, to uses in furniture and actual construction of a bamboo house. Indeed, it's a life changing experience.

Smiley faceEight days? With so many discoveries and experiences at every "bamboo node," I forgot to count the days. Interesting, exciting, exhausting. Every day was a "pliant like bamboo" movement from theory to practice, from lecture to workshop, from ideal to real. But more than the magic of bamboo, it was the contagion of interacting with people in love with bamboo that spelled the difference.

Smiley faceMula 1st module hngng last. Im sure wala kng palalampasin. Sobrang saya ng work shop, very interesting and exciting, nakaka-adik ang bawat work shop.
I almost didn't want to stop hand on training. You don't have to be a skilled worker to train, you need to learn.
