The LSE Consortium on Migration and Development and the Ateneo School of Government (ASoG) launched the 38th LSE Program in Singapore on Sunday, 22 May 2016 at the Philippine Bayanihan Centre. Philippine Ambassador to Singapore Antonio A. Morales and other officials of the Philippine Embassy grace the event with Mr. and Mrs. Edgardo Valenzuela of ASoG and officials of the LSE Secretariat Singapore. The LSE Program is a collaborative effort pioneered in Rome from 2008 and is intended to provide a meaningful and significant capacity-building experience for the participants to become better examples to their families and contribute to financial inclusion and nation-building. In 2016, Singapore joins Macau, Hong Kong, Madrid and Barcelona in launching LSE involving over 200 participants. Ambassador Morales congratulated the ASoG for realizing its ‘dream’ of setting up an LSE program in Singapore. He noted that the initiative complements the efforts of PHL government in general and the Embassy in general in providing opportunities for overseas Filipinos to pursue further education even if they are working abroad. He also congratulated the participants for seizing the opportunity to earn additional knowledge and qualifications through the LSE program.
