The Technology for Education, Employment, Entrepreneurs, and Economic Development (Tech4ED) Project evolved  from the Philippine Community eCenter Program,  a national digital inclusion initiative establishing eCenters that provide critical e-government and  ICT-enabled services in  communities with minimal or no access to information and government services.

 

This initiative was the government’s  response to the World Summit on Information Society Plan of Action of which the Philippines  was a signatory which states that “ Governments and other stakeholders should establish multi-purpose community public access points, providing affordable or free-of-charge access for their citizens to the various communication resources, notably the internet.”

Rest in peace, Fr. Dino Ariola, SVD!

 

Fr. Dino Ariola, SVD died of heart attack on March 21, 2018 at the Holy Name Medical Center (HNMC), Tagbilaran City, Bohol. He was 71 years old. His wake from March 22-23 will be at the activity center of HNMC while on March 24 and 25, it will be at the St. Arnold Janssen and Joseph Freinademetz Chapel of the University of San Carlos Talamban Campus (USC-TC), Cebu City. Funeral Mass will be on March 26, 1 pm at the USC-TC.

 

Fr. Dino was born in Lapaz, Iloilo on Septembre 17, 1946. He was the 6th among 13 siblings.

 

His family transferred to Mabolo, Cebu when he was still young. The zeal of her elder sister to attend Holy Mass also inspired him to become an altar boy. He believed that through his services in the liturgical celebration, the young seed of priestly vocation was already planted in his heart.

 

He pursued medicine in Manila but after the death of his father, he went back to Cebu and continued his studies at the University of San Carlos. Here, he was introduced to the life of the Divine Word Missionaries. Eventually, he entered the seminary.

 

Fr. Dino belonged to the Verbum Incarnatum Class and they were ordained on October 25, 1980. His first mission assignment was Togo, Africa. He learned French in Belgium as his preparation for his mission.

 

When he went back to the Philippines, he became a chaplain of the Divine Word University (Liceo Verbo Divino) in Tacloban, Leyte.

 

He also went to Rome for a Spiritual Formation Course which proved to be very beneficial in his succeeding mission assignments: 5 years chaplaincy at the Divine Word College (Holy Name University), Tagbiliran, Bohol; 5 years parish priest in Socoro, Siargao Island and Sabang, Surigao City, and; Spiritual Director of the SVD Brothers at the St. Joseph Friendametz Formation Center-Cebu.

 

In 2016, Fr. Dino was assigned at the Divine Word Formation Center-Davao. He also celebrated his 35th anniversary in the priesthood on October 25, 2016. (Text Credits: FCF and Joseph Nichols Magdaherin)
