Everyday, 12-year old Mark Wilson Allado, walks on a scorching weather going to school in San Fabian, Pangasinan. By doing this and herding goats after his class, he’s able to save a meager amount to finance his school projects and other activities. Just like Mark, Ian Quinto from Silang, Cavite makes sure that a portion of his earnings as construction aid goes to his education. Both of them believe that education could possibly save them from poverty. Mark and Ian belong to this year’s BEAR BRAND Batang Matibay Awardees 2019.
