Lawrence Hardy II, Mission Director, Philippine-American (Phil-Am) Fund Flalok Project Exit Event

At USAID, we believe that education serves as a driver for development and poverty reduction. Education is transformational for individuals and societies. It can also create pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies.

It is because we believe so strongly in the importance of education that the U.S. government works closely with the Philippine government to expand access to inclusive, quality education for all – especially the most marginalized and vulnerable. Experience has shown that education not only raises individual incomes but can also advance inclusive economic growth for the country.
