Praise God! Our prayers have been answered! MCCID College of Technology is now graciously blessed for having acquired a 6,000 square meter (more than 1/2 hectare) of prime property in the cool, rolling hills of Municipality of San Mateo, Province of Rizal. It is situated along the Bgy. Silangan National Road. in Barangay Silangan.
The lush property is near the boundary of Marikina City and San Mateo. It is 13 kms. away from Cubao, Quezon City and 2 kms. away from Marikina City Hall. There is a direct jeepney route from Cubao Terminal to the place via Marikina City. The property is nearly 300 meters above sea level overlooking the Marikina Valley so flooding will not be a problem. Landslides rarely occur because of the land\’s very low angle of inclination.
The multi-million peso real estate was brought by MCCID College out of its savings from the school\’s operation as well as generous donations coming from the MCCID family, relatives, friends and non-government foundations. As of October 2009, major improvements that have been completed are:
- The entire property already has a 10-ft high concrete-wall perimeter fence including 2 ft. of barbed wires on top;
- The street facade is secured with a steel gate and concrete wall.
- The street lighting was placed in order to provide illumination.
San Mateo, Rizal is a first class urban municipality of Rizal Province. Located on the island of Luzon. It is part of the Metro Luzon Urban Beltway. Metro Luzon is composed of Region 3, Region 4-A (CALABARZON) and the nearby National Capital Region (NCR). San Mateo is located along the western border of Rizal Province, it is bordered on the west by Quezon City, to the south by Marikina City and Antipolo City, the capital of Rizal Province, and to the north by Rodriguez (Montalban) also in Rizal province. It is approximately 24 kilometers away from Manila and 11 kilometers south of Pasig City, the former town capital of Rizal.
MCCID College intends to put up a two-floor school building, a multi-purpose covered court for our sports activities, special dormitories for our students from the provinces, a livelihood training center and an Olympic size swimming pool.
For the past 16 years, MCCID has been renting small building spaces first in Sta. Mesa, Manila and now in Cubao, Quezon City. In spite of that, the school was able to fulfill its mission of providing quality technical education for nearly 250 deaf high school graduates in the Philippines. Majority of them now work in IT related jobs nationwide.
MCCID College continues to aim higher. The institute wants to strengthen its efforts in educating the Filipino Deaf in the field of information technology and widen their career opportunities. The school may not be able to expand its mission by confining itself in a small place. Having its own land is one step in achieving that goal.
But the task does not end there. The school needs additional funding in order to support the construction of its new school building. MCCID College needs to raise at more than Php 5 million so that it can start putting up the structure.
With this, MCCID College is asking for your assistance in giving us seed money for the construction of the school building. Most importantly, your help will support our indigent Filipino deaf students who are very eager to learn and become productive citizens of our country.

We have the land. Now, we ask you to help us put up the building. Your donation will be very much appreciated. May God continue to bless you and your family!!!
