WS works to restore faith in public schools

SGV Founder Wash SyCip was recently featured in the May 2011 issue of Forbes Asia for his work in combating further deterioration of Philippine public schools. The article Back to his roots highlights Wash’s involvement with Synergeia Foundation in giving every Filipino child the opportunity to have a decent education. Though the foundation runs programs to improve adult literacy and to help poor students move up to high school, Wash’s donations are spent solely on elementary education. “Some people don’t give because the need is great, he says, “You cannot solve all problems, but if you help in certain areas, it will spread.”
