Personal Ability Development (PAD) Foundation, Inc. is a non-stock and non-profit organization under the N.T. Group of Companies. Established in 2007, it is accredited by TESDA for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to provide Japanese language training. PAD Foundation conducts classroom-based lessons to develop speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. Review classes for Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) are also offered. Aside from textbooks, audio-visual and other reading materials are also available for the trainees’ use.
In an effort to promote mental and physical wellness, PAD Foundation held its first sportsfest for employees and trainees. The event was held last October 20, 2018 at the T.S. Cruz covered court. Trainees from different classes were combined to form teams for basketball and volleyball, while each class competed against each other in the cheerdance competition.
To replenish their lost energy, a boodle-style lunch was served. Forget chopsticks for a while! Eating with their bare hands, everybody gathered as one around a long table and strengthened their unity even more.
We encourage everyone to keep your minds and body healthy!
