Edy Rose shows her medals, the proof of her academic excellence.
For 17-year-old Edy Rose Tayab of Quezon, Bukidnon, being born with a congenital deformity is not easy. Daily life is physically difficult, especially as she has no feet and left hand. 

But Edy Rose did not let her disability define her life. She refused to let anything get in the way of achieving her dreams. 
 
She wanted to excel in her class, just like her able-bodied friends, and she worked hard for it. 

“Gusto kong patunayan na kaya ko ding gawing ang ginagawa ng mga taong walang kapansanan  (I want to prove  that I can also do what other people without disabilities can do),” claimed Edy Rose.

Richard Casta shares how becoming a Pantawid Pamilya parent leader changed his perception of community involvement.
 
Around 150 parent leaders from Payatas participated in a dialogue with Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to talk about how their lives were changed by the volunteerism taught by the program.

These parent leaders are partner-beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program who were elected to lead a number of household beneficiaries in a purok or barangay. They serve as organizers of partner-beneficiaries in the community whenever there are program-related meetings and assemblies such as the Family Development Sessions (FDS). FDS are monthly sessions where all partner-beneficiaries attend to learn about topics such as husband and wife relationship, home and financial management, and disaster risk management.  

The parent leaders willingly take the extra mile to help implement the program without expecting anything in return.

Parent Leaders from Region 1 participate actively in the workshop conducted during the Parent Leader's Dialogue with Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman held last February 19, 2015 in Urdaneta, Pangasinan.
 
Street vendor Gilbert Ramos never imagined that he would one day be a decision maker in his barangay. An active member of his community, Gilbert now allocates the budget for priority projects in their area.

Gilbert was one of the parent leaders who were invited to share their stories of change during the Parent Leader’s Dialogue with Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) held last February 19, 2015 in Urdaneta, Pangasinan. 

Bilang isang Parent Leader, natuto akong mag ayos ng aking sarili. Dati, kung ano na lang ang maisuot ko kung ako ay magtitinda. Pero dahil sa Family Development Session (FDS), natutunan ko ang kahalagahan na maging presentable kahit na ako ay isang hamak na tindero lang. (As a Parent Leader I learned how to fix myself. I was not really concerned before about what to wear whenever I went out to sell. But because of the Family Development Session, I learned the importance of being presentable even if I was just a humble vendor),” Gilbert shared.
