Pay it forward. It’s what Cieleto Fernandez does every day.
Cieleto is an alumnus of Unbound’s Quezon program in Agoo, La Union, in the Philippines. He was part of Unbound for 14 years and finished his education in computer technology. Now he works in a computer shop owned by a friend.
For a few years Cieleto had his own shop, which he operated out of his house. He assembled desktop computers from spare parts gathered from his neighborhood and friends. He made enough money to send his sister to school for a two-year hotel and restaurant management course.
The enterprising young man also went back school to earn a teaching certificate so he can teach computer courses and share his knowledge with youth.
