About us

BRIEF BACKGROUND
TOGETHER begun as early as 1990 by a Korean Missionary to serve the Almighty God through loving and teaching the special children. Finally in 1993, this vision was realized. Different programs were formed as a result of the invitation to families with special children from every community in Zamboanga City.
TOGETHER means PARTNERSHIP or COOPERATION for without the partnership of parents and teachers, no special child can be improved. That is the reason why we named it TOGETHER SPED CENTER FOUNDATION INC. It is a non-stock, non-profit educational foundation duly registered in Security and Exchange Commission (SEC).
