Peñaflorida, known as the “pushcart mentor,” having pioneered an alternative learning system called pushcart classroom credited with bringing education (including news and other information) to the poorest of the poor children (and their parents) in the streets and neighborhoods of his native Cavite for the past eight years to get them off drugs and gangs, topped the CNN Heroes online voting ....
