Kuwento

KUWENTO means story, and this is our space for reflection. This is where members of the Teach for the Philippines family share their experience of being part of the movement towards education reform. We hope that through sharing our KUWENTO, we will be able to give you a more complete view of what it means to leave your mark for our children, and for our country.
