Joselito P. lives in an island that has not seen any kind of light -- electricity has not come to the remote island of silaki in pangasinan. A child laborer since 5 years old, Joselito dives for sea urchins everyday so he can send himself to school.
Joselito represented his school in the province-wide Electronics Competition. Joselito won 2nd place. The poor former child laborer, bested students coming from rich schools
Who would have thought that a child from a remote island that hasn't seen any light/electricity could win in an electronics competition?
Such is the power of determination. Such is the power of malasakit.
With the small amount of P1,000 per month from donors, Joselito is slowly fulfilling his dream of becoming an engineer as he graduated last March 2014 from High School with honors and a Campus Journalism award.
