Inspiring Young Boy Carries His Baby Brother To School Everyday

How important is education to you?

Education is important because it gives people the baseline skills to survive as adults in the world. These skills include basic literacy and numeracy, as well as the ability to communicate, complete tasks and work with others. For a developing country like Philippines, not all kids have the chance to go to school due to financial issues. But this kid is not letting that happen.

An inspiring boy from Philippines carries his younger brother everyday to school.

He admits he doesn’t have time for his children, but he raised them to be responsible at a very young age.

A photo showing a young boy bringing his brother to school went viral on Facebook a few days ago. Thanks to social media, the world got to know of these devoted brothers’ daily lives. Mateo Bano carries his younger brother, Jerico, to school with him so that he can study while taking care of his brother.

Apparently, their mother died after suffering from ectopic pregnancy, and their father had to raise them by himself. In order to feed and support three boys, their dad, Matt Bano, had to work 2 jobs.

He admitted that he practically had no time for his children, but claims that he has raised them to be responsible at a very young age—as the photos show.
