” I’m not exaggerating when I say that Efren Peñaflorida has done more for the poorest of the poor than all of those who like to say “poorest of the poor” today, and he did not have billions, all he had was a pushcart. You can’t be serious enough to want reform if you can’t be enlightened enough to see reform—and nowhere does reform …come with a blazing neon sign than in the person of CNN’s Hero of the Year for last year, our hero of the year for all years. You want to give to the poorest of the poor in a way that gives dignity, justice and sustainability to them alongside it, then put P21 billion in the hands of Peñaflorida, or people like him, and multiply the number of kareton classrooms by the same amount Jesus Christ multiplied the loaves and fishes.”

“ Making a Difference, oneself, one kid, one family and one community at a time not thru charity but thru participatory endeavors imbued with dignity with the end-view of making the “good” that was intended to happen sustainable even when they are already beyond their years, that’s the legacy that the Amazing Kids of the Dynamic Teen Company wants to leave. “
