CULTIVATING YOUNG MINDS FOR THE FUTURE
Sparking creativity and realizing the youth's full potential
Remote rural barangays in the Philippines are not often considered dynamic. But by investing in education and supporting young Filipinos through their schooling, we help foster individuals who can act in ways that incrementally develop dynamic thought, behavior, and aspiration in their own lives. And by inspiration, in others' lives, too.
FPVI, to date, specifically supports access to secondary school for children, each selected as beneficiaries because they have experienced significant disadvantage yet showed resilience and promise.
