Founded on Tatang Henry Sy, Sr.’s belief that education is the greatest equalizer, the program aims to provide thousands of Filipino youth the chance for a better future through higher education. Tatang believed that if he could help send one child to school, that child can then help his or her siblings finish schooling and together, they can help uplift their family out of poverty.
