Efren Penaflorida, a Filipino, has been recognized as one of the “2009 CNN Heroes” for his outstanding advocacy to educate Filipino out-of-school youth through “pushcart” classes. (source:wikipilipinas.org)

His story, his mission is very moving and very inspirational and it touched my heart deeply and greatly.  And we would like to extend our mission by helping him and his non-profit organization called Dynamic Teen Company (DTC).   

DTC’s mission to teach unschooled, labor-exploited and neglected street children is slowly being realized today. The group also conducts weekly feeding, first aid treatment of scabies and wounds, and values formation activities through their K4 Project (Kariton Klasrum, Klinik at Kantin). Hygiene and first aid skills are supervised by registered midwives and professional nurses who are DTC Alumni. (Source: http://www.dynamicteencompany.org)
