Efren and CNN Hero


Efren Peñaflorida gives Filipino youth an alternative to gang membership through education. His Dynamic Teen Company's 10,000 members have taught basic reading and writing to 1,500 kids living in the slums.

Vote for him as CNN's Hero of the Year.

He may not be Superman but for the kids whom he inspires and provides "pushcart education", he is Efren(pronounced as A FRIEND).
