An estimated 9 million Filipinos can�t read, write, or count, while 24 million have never been to school. Driven by a determination to build a community with zero non-readers, the head teacher of San Jose Elementary School in the province of Sorsogon started a program to teach children in remote villages how to read. In this mission, he is helped by volunteer little teachers � his students who share his advocacy of making sure that no child in their place will remain unschooled.
