Ever since I saw Efren Penaflorida’s story on CNN, I’ve been a huge fan of him and his organization, Dynamic Teen Company; in fact, we have sent two boxes of children’s books and movies to them a few months ago.  Efren’s educational mission and vision for the poor children in the Philippines are very personal for me as I have the same goal – to help in giving a good education to these under privilege kids in the philippines ; I just wish I am living in the Philippines so I could directly help these children too; giving aid, sending donations are not enough for me; I would like to do more hands-on help… but for now, I am trying to start our humble mission with PROJECT PEARLS! – Click here to visit our site to read more about our cause.

  1. i saw the project pearls. great things u do for a cause. we need more people like who are willing to help out our communities even if it means using our own resources. i know God will bless your efforts.

    the reality that we are in here in the Philippines also prompted us to do the same. we’re very much involved in our communities serving them in ways we can. we call it PASA LOVE.
