The establishment of the TESDA Women’s Center started in 1993 when former Senator Leticia Ramos-Shahani met with some members of the Japanese Diet. Between 1996 and 1997 the Exchange of Notes for the Project was done.

A total amount of Japanese Yen 2.620 Billion (USD 23.82M) was granted for the construction of the Center. This development was in sync with TESDA’s affirmative action policy of ensuring that women are trained in industrial courses traditionally dominated by men. The policy requires that at least 10 percent of the total TESDA annual training graduates are women. The turnover / hand-over ceremony and inauguration of the TESDA Women’s Center and its Dormitory was held in 1998.
