A total of 86 principals from the said DepEd divisions, 32 non-teaching staff from Region 11 while 28 from Region 7 experienced synergistic and experiential learning to hone them to be more effective leaders and strengthen the foundation of their organizations.

"CitySavings' Project Synergy is an effective way of enriching professional and managerial competence while recognizing personal limitations.", said Elpidio Quirino High School Principal Arnulfo Empleo.

"This is an amazing teambuilding program for all ages. It made me more confident that with my talent, I can develop other people and taught me that to work together towards a common vision is important." Shared Panabo City Schools Division Superintendent Cristy Cabral.

Driven by the bank's sustainability philosophy of "we can do well by doing good", Project Synergy will continue to transform beneficiaries from DepEd into proactive partners to create a dynamic and sustainable community.
