Education is a major catalyst for human development. Education equips people with the knowledge and skills they need to expand employment opportunities. We in the Lopez Group share this vision and strongly believe that by advocating Education through media, the Filipino will gain the confidence to be able to pursue their dreams in life.
This is supporting Education, The Lopez Way.
