Emman Bagual - Nobel Peace Prize Nominee for Children’s Rights
Teenager for a cause
Only 16 years old but young age didn’t deter Emmanuel Bagual to do his share in this challenging world and be nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for Children’s Rights.
This is another Filipino citizen we should be proud of. Like the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida, Emman championed the rights of the children against the abuses of the society, especially at home.
When his authored coloring book, A Child’s Rights, was published, it was adopted by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) to be included in the curriculum, particularly in elementary education.
Emman can be seen visiting schools to promote the coloring book with the simplified explanations on children’s rights that should be followed by adults.
Dynamic Teen Company
Dynamic Teen Company was founded by four teenagers way back 2003 headed by the 2009 CNN Hero Efren Penaflorida. Since then, many teeners are reaping rewards through the core group called DTC because of their untiring efforts to alleviate the grim situation of street children who cannot afford a decent education. DTC is based in Cavite City, Philippines and hopes to incorporate their system in Philippine education. DTC is famous for educating children through the 'Kariton Klasrum' or cart classroom.
Emmanuel Bagual or Emman, 16 years old is motivated by the achievements of his Kuya F or Efren that the Nobel Prize award-giving body took notice.
