Participants of the Busina Mo, Dunong Ko Mobile Education Project attended the Seminar Workshop on Heroism and Leadership organized by the Philippine Women's University last May 6, 2013.
The youth gained positive insights and inspiration from the stories and experiences shared by the speakers led by 2009 CNN Hero of the Year, Efren Peñaflorida.
They learned that anyone can be a hero in his or her own right, that being a hero does not entail wearing a red cape or having superpowers. Anyone can be a hero by being a good citizen and by striving to make even a small difference in his/her community.
VIDES aims to empower the youth through skill-building and leadership training to develop and strengthen the needed competencies so they can become agents of change in their communities.
