"My parents decided to send me to Anihan Technical School because it was very near in our house. I found Anihan a beautiful school and I knew there were many things to learn here, especially in terms of baking and cooking. It was a big help to our family because I did not worry about the everyday expenses in transportation. And as far as I knew, Anihan offers only 2 years of study, and after graduating, the school will help you find work. It made me more interested in going to that school. We even felt that it was a big privilege to us"

"Anihan School improved and added to my skills, and made me more confident. Anihan also taught me how to be friendlier to everybody. And most important of all, Anihan taught me how to be closer to God. They mold each student to be a good person - a person with concern and love for work. Anihan assures that we will continue to practice the virtues, values and good manners that our teachers taught us. And that we should always be a good example to the younger ones"

"I am very thankful to Anihan Technical School, and most especially to the sponsors who never stop helping the students in their studies. Now I am able to help my family by supporting their everyday expenses"
