The government of the Philippines faces the enormous challenge of creating more and better jobs and reducing poverty. The substantial out-flow of its best and brightest people from the Philippines must somehow be stemmed if the country is to live up to its potential.

 

The Philippines has made progress in gender equality, reducing the mortality rate of children aged five years and younger, in reducing tuberculosis and increasing access to water and sanitation services. These are all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but the country still ranks 117 out of 187 on the Human Development Programme Index of the United Nations. Poverty is rife as almost one in four Filipinos lives on less than US$ 1.25 a day.

 

LSL can help the Filipino government to put in place an innovative financing for development model which would enable the government to harness the power of telecommunications. This could help the government to collect and protect revenues effectively—a huge opportunity to invest the generated  funds in healthcare, to combat poverty, create jobs in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors.  The associated programmes would be launched, managed and monitored effectively by creating a management office (MO).

The government of the Philippines faces the enormous challenge of creating more and better jobs and reducing poverty. The substantial out-flow of its best and brightest people from the Philippines must somehow be stemmed if the country is to live up to its potential.

 

The Philippines has made progress in gender equality, reducing the mortality rate of children aged five years and younger, in reducing tuberculosis and increasing access to water and sanitation services. These are all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but the country still ranks 117 out of 187 on the Human Development Programme Index of the United Nations. Poverty is rife as almost one in four Filipinos lives on less than US$ 1.25 a day.

 

LSL can help the Filipino government to put in place an innovative financing for development model which would enable the government to harness the power of telecommunications. This could help the government to collect and protect revenues effectively—a huge opportunity to invest the generated  funds in healthcare, to combat poverty, create jobs in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors.  The associated programmes would be launched, managed and monitored effectively by creating a management office (MO).

The government of the Philippines faces the enormous challenge of creating more and better jobs and reducing poverty. The substantial out-flow of its best and brightest people from the Philippines must somehow be stemmed if the country is to live up to its potential.

 

The Philippines has made progress in gender equality, reducing the mortality rate of children aged five years and younger, in reducing tuberculosis and increasing access to water and sanitation services. These are all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but the country still ranks 117 out of 187 on the Human Development Programme Index of the United Nations. Poverty is rife as almost one in four Filipinos lives on less than US$ 1.25 a day.

 

LSL can help the Filipino government to put in place an innovative financing for development model which would enable the government to harness the power of telecommunications. This could help the government to collect and protect revenues effectively—a huge opportunity to invest the generated  funds in healthcare, to combat poverty, create jobs in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors.  The associated programmes would be launched, managed and monitored effectively by creating a management office (MO).
