Magician in a corporate suit

Jijie Zablan

Founder: Filipino Computer Club

 

Filipina engineer Milagros "Jijie" Zablan is sometimes described as a magician in a corporate suit. Founder of volunteer group Filipino Computer Club (FCC) in Dubai in 1996 to render free weekend computer lessons to fellow Filipinos, she has touched the lives of thousands, including many domestic workers.

 

She started off with 10 "students" from the Philippine Institute of Chartered Accountants (PICPA). "Their leader asked me to train their members on Microsoft Excel. So we struck a barter: I will train their members for free and, in turn, they would also help me train other Filipinos learn what I taught them."

 

Since then, volunteers have given computer lesson to more than 31,000 people in Dubai and other emirates. She is the director of consultancy firm Great Minds Network, but it's her passion for volunteer work that makes a big difference to others.

 

Recently, she has started a free motivational class to help distressed housemaids. "We'd like them to rediscover their inner strengths enough to forgive completely and take on the challenge of turning their lives around … because attitude is everything."

 

Jijie says: "When you lift up something up to God and commit that you will do what it takes to achieve your goal, consider it done."

 

She lives by her motto: "I am at my best, when I bring out the best in you."

FCC's Training Center is in between these two Greenline stations:

 

Dubai Airport FreeZone station (Green Line)
What's around: A highly populated residential area dotted by low-rise residential buildings with its share of shopping, hotels and restaurants.
Walking distance: Shop 'n' Save (2), Karachi Darbar (2), Zulekha Medical Centre (3), Al Twar Park (3), Falah Primary School (4), Union Coop (5), Al Twar Public Library (6), Dubai Airport Free Zone gate (18-20), Rewaq Charity Center (FCC Training Center).

DUBAI: Come September - September 9 to be precise - and the journey between        old and new Dubai will be just a few brisk steps away.
The Green Line starting that day will snake into the farthest nooks and crannies of Dubai, while linking most government buildings to the rest of Dubai.
During peak hours, 14 trains will run at six- to eight-minute intervals.
With the new line traversing Dubai's residential, business, diplomatic, cultural and health centres, parking woes and narrow roads chock-a-block with traffic could be a thing of the past.
Eight kilometres of the 23-km line are underground, a five-year engineering job seen to shore up Dubai's status as a tourism, trading and service hub.
The Green Line thus brings to completion the ambitious Dh28-billion Dubai Metro project, which together will have 50 trains running at peak hours (28 trains at off-peak).
The highly successful Red Line, launched in September 2009 with up to 180,000 daily users, has already changed the city's transport landscape. While the Red Line connects homes and high-rises to two airport terminals, the Green Line connects the two old quarters on either side of Dubai Creek, with Al Ras and Al Ghubaiba stations clad in traditional Emirati architecture dovetailing three modes of transportation -- train, bus and Abra.
People from Sharjah and other emirates can opt to use the park-and-ride terminal that can hold 2,350 vehicles at etisalat station to explore the rest of the city.
XPRESS visited the 18 stations opening on the Green Line to give you the lowdown on the areas they serve and the prominent landmarks near each stop.
Happy travelling!

The Filipino Computer Club Dubai and the Northern Emirates

Fourteen Years and Beyond

By: William Caraan

 

The Filipino Computer Club of Dubai and the Northern Emirates is the first and the longest running Filipino organization in the Emirates.  FCC Dubai is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious organization whose mission and vision is to help our fellow Filipino Expats achieve computer literacy and excellence in the fields of Information Technology and Personality Development.  It was founded by Eng Jijie Zablan in 1996 and was headed by her sister Eng Cherry Pye Zablan-Torres and has trained over 29,000 Filipnos as of date.

 

The club recently held their recognition day for its October to December 2010 term having more than 200 trainees graduating from various courses.  The event was a celebration for the fruits of labor exerted both by the trainees and the ever selfless trainers and volunteers of the club.  Amongst the highlights of the said event was a triple celebration with the recognition day, the club’s Christmas party and their celebration of the club’s 14th year anniversary.  The event was organized by the trainers & students of the PC Assembly Course Batch 14 (Oct – Dec 2010).

 From Our New MCP    

Dear FCC Family,

I would like to thank all of you for making it possible for me to become an MCP last 09 May 2009. I am so grateful for having the chance to be trained by FCC. They motivated me not only to get a passing score but to attain the highest which is 1000/1000 for the Microsoft 270 Exam.

FCC has been my training ground from Speechcraft, Advanced Excel, Web Design, to Networking.

Special thanks to Ma’am Cherry Pye Torres, Sir Danny Eramiz, Sir Maximo Doce, and of course, Ate Nitz for the guidance and support.

I am so proud to be a member of this wonderful family!

Regards,

Abigail Cruz

Computer Engineer, MCP
FCC Member

 


Name: Abigail Cruz

Date: 18 May, 2009

 

I never thought designing a website could be so easy! This was made possible by a dedicated trainer who has very good teaching techniques by starting from the very basic to what the students need to know on creating their own websites. From basic HTML, to Photoshop, to Flash-made websites! There is no other institution / club in the UAE where I can have a free and high-quality training as what FCC is giving.

 

Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sir Milo for teaching and influencing me on my web design, networking skills, and developed more of my analytical thinking. He's one of those whom I owe my achievement from (passing the MCP).
