The Association of Foundations (AF), together with the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd), Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), and the Zero Extreme Poverty 2030 (ZEP2030) Movement, hosted an orientation on Education Nation last December 10, 2021 with around 50 participants from network members and partners.

Education Nation is a coalition of advocates working together to ensure quality and inclusive education in the Philippines.  In his opening message, Mr. Oman Jiao of AF stressed the urgency of a concerted effort for a stronger voice and a wider reach to successfully achieve the desired reforms in education. Ms. Diane Fajardo of PBEd presented the plans of the coalition in the next few months and how organizations and individuals may participate.
