Eduk-Aksyon :  The Great Equalizer

In a world where opportunities often favor the privileged few, Jean Henri Lhuillier, Consul General of San Marino and President and CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier, stands as a beacon of hope for a more equitable society. His steadfast belief in the transformative power of education is embodied in his mantra, “Always Love Schooling,” a testament to his conviction that education serves as the great equalizer in society.

Lhuillier’s commitment to bridging the gap in the Philippines led to the inception of “San Marino Cares: Fun Learning through Eduk-Aksyon,” an initiative aimed at empowering marginalized communities. Launched at A Home for the Angels, an organization dedicated to neglected children in Manila, the program offers reading and comprehension classes using an award-winning book on adoption. By equipping children with knowledge and skills, Lhuillier endeavors to break the cycle of inequality and pave the way for a brighter future.

Education, for Lhuillier, is more than just a means of acquiring knowledge; it is a catalyst for social change. Through initiatives like “San Marino Cares,” he seeks to create a society where equal opportunities abound. Recognizing the widening gap between the rich and the poor, Lhuillier champions education as the cornerstone of progress, offering hope to those in marginalized communities.

“Education is the great equalizer, and through initiatives like ‘San Marino Cares,’ we are dedicated to empowering marginalized communities. By providing children with the tools they need to succeed, we aim to break the cycle of inequality and create a brighter future for all.” – Jean Henri Lhuillier

In a country where access to quality education remains a challenge, Lhuillier’s efforts are paramount. By providing children with opportunities to learn and engage, he ensures that no child is left behind. Understanding that education instills not only knowledge but also confidence, he empowers individuals to shape their own destinies.

The initiative addresses a pressing issue in the Philippines: the inequality of opportunity. As educational disparities persist, so do unequal circumstances and opportunities. Lhuillier recognizes that education is not only a fundamental human right but also a powerful tool for social mobility and change.

For many Filipino children, education represents more than just a pathway to success—it is a lifeline. By investing in education, Lhuillier invests in the future of the nation, laying the groundwork for a more just and prosperous society.

As Lhuillier continues to champion education as the great equalizer, he reminds us that every child deserves the chance to dream, to learn, and to succeed. Through his unwavering dedication and commitment, he paves the way for a brighter and more inclusive future for all.
