Empowerment, Sustainable Outreach, and Education
Wi-Teach aims to TIE:

In order to advocate for true equality, we have to be able to give all Filipino youth, REGARDLESS OF GENDER OR SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS, with the tools necessary for them to even consider science and technology as a path for the future.
Wi-Teach is one of the community development initiatives of WiTech that aims to TIE: to Teach, Inspire and Engage with students through sustainable outreach, education and empowerment. The first leg of the Wi-Teach initiative was launched last August 2-4, 2018 at the Mindanao State University – University Training Center in Marawi City.
