TRAINING TO IMPROVE LIVES
VALUES AND SKILLS
The Focolare Carpentry Training Center (FCTC) had its humble start as a social center for adults who possessed particular talents but have no means of sustenance. It developed and grew into a stable institution in 1968 when an Italian master carpenter and two talented Filipino carvers from the Mountain Province decided to pool their skills together and start such an activity. This communion of work gave birth to a furniture manufacturing and training center.
Our Training Environment
The trainee undergoes both theoretical and practical training. He learns furniture carpentry through observation and actual application of carpentry skills on particular projects.
His work experience starts from cutting the wood, using the different tools and machines, assembly and finishing.
Trainees observe strict study and work schedules thus acquiring the right thinking and working habits necessary as they enter the employment stage.
