Our Mission

Our Mission

We believe big things can happen for education in Cebu. We are committed to inspiring a ripple effect of a love for learning and best-teaching practices in literacy to empower underprivileged communities of Cebu.

Our Problems

Why it Matters

Education is a basic human right and literacy is the key to unlocking the door to a life of learning. Higher literacy levels enable people to overcome the cycle of poverty and realize their dreams.

Who we are

Our team is composed of expats and Filipinos that now call Cebu our home. We are teachers, architects, designers, entrepreneurs that complement each other strengths to better improve the life of children in our community. We share a common passion and a motivation to share our vision about what for us, matters, inspiring children to learn and giving them access to a better education.

Given the chance

Given the chance what program would you create that for you, matters most? Our answer to this question is what created It Matters. We believe, when you open a book you open a mind and when you open a mind you open a door. Literacy unlocks the door to a lifetime of learning. Given the chance, this is what we chose to do. Helping children unlock those doors by inspiring them to read, write, imagine while nourishing their curiosity for learning.
