GUIUAN, Eastern Samar — Dreaming to become a teacher someday, Jasmine, 8, a Grade 3 learner at Cagdaba-o Primary School convinced her mother to get a new copy of her birth certificate.

Jasmine lost her record when strong winds brought by super typhoon Yolanda blew away their house, making life more difficult for the family. This situation, however, inspired the young child to aim high and study harder in order to fulfill her dreams.

Her father, Jesus, 28, a pedicab driver earns a measly average of Php100 per day, which is not even sufficient to cover for the family’s basic needs.

The poor girl attends her class everyday in a makeshift classroom combined with Grade 4 learners.

“I am glad knowing about her dream and I am willing to support her that is why I am determined to get the new copy of her birth certificate because I know that she will need this in order to finish her studies and finally achieve her ambition,” Jasmine’s mother, Maribel, said.
