A Hero Called Efren

Efren Penaflorida is an ordinary Filipino with a very extraordinary passion and impact!

Armed with a pushcart filled with books, pens, tables and chairs, he and his volunteers raid slums to teach children read, write, basic arithmetic and English every Saturday.

His vision: to give these children the education that was given him. A true, wonderful act of giving back!

And it doesn't stop there. Their group, dubbed Dynamic Teen Company, also runs a hygiene clinic where the kids can get a bath and learn how to brush their teeth!

Let us vote for his herculean act of generosity and greatness. Please click on the widget on my sidebar to vote for Efren, or you can visit here.

I am very much inspired with Efren and the Dynamic Teen Company's desire to help.

This is another amazing story which reminds us that we are blessed by God to bless others. Just truly, simply inspiring :)

He is a hero :)

I have voted already and will continue to vote :)
