The Board of Trustees, management and staff of the Foundation for Information Technology Education and Development (FIT-ED) mourn the passing of its founding chairman, Ambassador Roberto R. Romulo. He was a pillar of Philippine business, a renowned diplomat, a committed public servant and a true nation-builder. His six-decade career spanned multiple fields in the private sector, government and civil society including international relations, business, technology, education, governance, health and the environment.
For 24 years, Ambassador Romulo inspired FIT-ED with his vision of digital technologies as a transformative tool that can improve education systems and uplift the lives of children and youth in the Philippines and across the developing world.
We pray for the peaceful repose of his soul and join the Romulo Family, his colleagues and friends in celebrating his lifelong service to the Filipino people.
