Mr Benzon: Education Builds a Better World for Our Children

Education:  A Better World for Our Children

Education is a mark of progress. Together with some rich nations around the world, each developing country strives to collaborate and to invest on education, the simple way of creating a good and motivated workforce.  An educated society is an investment of citizenship.

This new year 2011, the teaching habit of “I Share” revolves in various communities, as everyone: rich and poor alike, work hand in hand toward educating the young; and the future generation.  

Fidelino “Daddy” Benzon (serving Paranaque City, ex-councilor, an advocate for educating the poor) tells about how anyone of us can help children  and/or youth be sent to school through various projects.  One of them is the “Send a Poor Child to School,” that is a project of the Rotary Clubof Paranaque East. The project intends to provide basic education to poor and deserving children by way of extending financial assistance or subsidy to cover school expenses, other than tuition fees.
