  5. 5. OFFICIAL WEEKLY PUBLICATIO OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF MAKATI SA LORE ZO Thursday, October 22, 2009 Sylvia Lichauco De Leon Sylvia obtained her degree from Georgetown University, School of Business - Class of ‘69 with a B.S.B.A. in Foreign Management. After graduation she became involved in the first condominium developments in the Philippines. In 1972 she moved to San Francisco and continued working in the real estate field. She founded Edgewood Investments and handled the acquisition and management of real estate investments primarily for overseas investors. She later worked as owner’s representative for the GSIS /PAL development of the prime commercial property on Union Square, S.F. Unfortunately, due to change in government despite all her efforts the project did not materialize. Sylvia worked on raising her 3 daughters in both S.F. and Boston but was looking for a chance to get involved in development. With a visit to Rwanda with an inspiring friend, and her last daughter ready for college - Sylvia returned to the Philippines to work on women’s and children’s issues. Her first assignment was to help launch an information campaign on the importance of breastfeeding, where she served as consultant to Children for Breastfeeding and UNICEF. Breastfeeding is the most far-reaching and least costly way to alleviate poverty. Yet breast milk substitutes are among the top 3 items sold in sari-sari stores all over the country. Approximately 16,000 Filipino babies die each year from not being breast fed. In 2006 after learning about the abuses of our female OFWs from the Human Rights website, (www.hrw.org) she proposed to the Philippines government that they host an international conference on gender and migration. Sylvia founded the Lola Grande Foundation for Women and Children, Inc. (LGF) which became a co-convener of the “International Conference on Gender, Migration, and Development (ICGMD) successfully held in September 2008. (www.icgmd.info) Lola Grande’s partners were the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women NCRFW, UNICEF, UNIFEM, ILO, Migrant Forum Asia and the Women and Gender Institute of Miriam College. It is important to note that the Manila Call to Action – the output of the Conference - the Manila Call to Action – has made it to the UN HCHR (UN High Commissioner on Human Rights, to the Special Rapparteur on Migrant Workers and their Families. Sylvia is proposing a Filipino Women’s Fund which will be a grant-making institution for women and children’s social issues related to education, environment, livelihood and health (See www.womensfunding network.org). With women as half the population, they should be entitled to half the development money. We have a long way to go.
