Life Changers Challenge Winner: Oras na Para Sa Alpabasa

I could still remember the date, it was April 28, 2015 when I first heard that Pharmaton is searching for Life Changer  through their Life Changers’ Challenge.  The event was attended by three of the country top names ( Reese Fernandez Ruiz of Rags2Riches, Futkal founder Peter Amores, and culinary educator Chef Rob Pengson )who inspire other to live their life to the fullest and endless possibilities.

And now after months of searching, ten finalists are presenting their  concept of the panel of judges to be able to receive a  one million peso grant from Pharmaton to fund their initiatives. The winning project will also be monitored by Pharmaton and documented as a “ Life Changer’s Journey” throughout the implementation of their project

Among the groups who were made it  into the top 10 , it  was Oras na Para sa Alpabasa, a group of educators who developed a game-based program to teach school children to read in Filipino who was awarded the grant.

The Panel of Judges
It was truly amazing to watch and heard the  group’s aspiration . Filipino life changers have truly proven  how the creative and how passionate they are in sustaining their energy and acting on their desire to make a significant ant change to the lives of the people around them. Pharmaton was so grateful to all those who took part in the Life changers challenge, and are honored to provide the necessary charge for life changers to fulfill their vision and go beyond themselves.

Pharmaton’s Life Changers Challenge: Success in Numbers was conceptualized with the aim of finding passionate Filipinos wanting to create positive change and help them sustain their energy for others and not just themselves.
