I watched Umagang Kay Ganda this morning and I've seen their segment about CNN Heroes. They said that one of our fellow Filipino is nominated in the top 10, so I immediately voted for him. His name is Efren Penaflorinda. He has this passion for teaching the kids who are not so lucky to have a good education. He is roaming around the depressed areas with a pushcart or "Kariton" classroom.
Together with his team of volunteers, they teach basic reading and writing to those children who are living in the streets. Their pushcart contains books, writing materials, tables and chairs. The group also has a hygienic clinic where children can take a bath and learn how to brush their teeth. For more of his full story. You can read this article straight from CNN's site: Efren Penaflorida's Story
If you want to vote: here's the site - CNN Heroes
