Pushcart Educator Won the CNN Hero of the Year

I was so happy last Sunday night when I heard and watched the news announcing the CNN Hero of the Year. I voted for our very own Efren Peñaflorida, the pushcart educator from the Philippines and I have posted it in my other blog for anyone who wants to cast their vote on any of the top ten CC heroes. I admired his advocate for educating the less fortunate children on the streets and slums which have robbed of precious education because of poverty.

My very own Mom was a retired teacher and she shares the same passion of educating the non-reader children neighbours in our place. For me it’s one of the best awards given to individuals. Now that Efren Peñaflorida won there’s a great hope that this project of Efren will flourish into more fruitful endeavors. Please see this touching speech of Efren from CNN.

Nice to see a pinoy in the news that's not associated with some form of violence. So much bad news lately from the Philippines!
