God Bless Efren Penaflorida!

I was browsing through the Twitter feed and I checked on this guy named Efren Penaflorida. He happens to be one of the 10 CNN Heroes of 2009.

Efren teaches kids in the slums to read. He has a pushcart classroom and he and his volunteers go to the slums on Saturdays to teach kids. Now that's a hero!



I am truly inspired by this man's mission to educate the less fortunate. He's my hero.

You have to check his story.

I voted for him several times already. I'll continue to vote!

Is he from Cavite? I think I saw him featured already in Ch. 2.

i read about his story back in April. he's really Hero. when i was small, i used to dream of having a summer camp for kids just like in the US. i joined summer camps but more for a religious affiliate. hopefully we can have this also in Phils. :-) maybe we can start something like that every summer. let me know if you are good with it.
