"TECTA funding has been a great help to me throughout this year. It enabled me to further my education with financial help while receiving support from their staff. They go way beyond just monetary help. Every encounter I have with the staff gives me the encouragement I need to keep going and gives the confidence that this was something that I can accomplish. Thanks to TECTA, I am looking forward to furthering my education more." - Dovie Mabe
