FYLPRO was established in 2012 by the Philippine Embassy in Washington DC, USA in cooperation with the Ayala Foundation, Inc. MWF's Integrated WASH (Water Access, Sanitation, and Hygiene) Program is a participatory intervention that will result to access to clean and potable water and improvement on sanitation facilities and hygiene practices in the communities.

Through the immersion at the Sitio, we hope that our FYLPRO delegates will be more fueled to pursue their passion for service and leadership.
