Several strategies are ahead from one profession as time goes from generation to generation. A
spiraling dependence of technology and the resulting longer life spans are faced with problems of ever-
increasing complexity. Our needs to fulfill change are presently felt, primarily a challenge for us to
consider in each one of us, to be compassionate to others, to be caring on our environment and all the
conditions that affect our society as a whole. Our world is facing hunger – to be reminded that it is also
our only source of life is facing the need to achieve the goals that we did solve for the incoming times. I

iLead to Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger: At present, our world has a so-called “hunger strike”

with children and considerably those who live in rural areas. They are basically affected due to
their accessibility and inappropriateness of human employment system which sets requirements of
competitiveness of new professionals – more younger enough to continue jobs to feed their families.

needs and actions of the government. In due time, eradication of this problems may be resolved if we
line professionals prior to their jobs, not professionals that are instead pick for their income, to consume
most and earn most, but the job doesn’t fit the profession itself. Shall we wait for such unreasonable
cause? Let’s lead to the change to promote wealth in all aspects and food, appropriate enough to fulfill
family needs in each house inside and outside of our country.
iLead to Achieve Universal Primary Education: Filipinos are educated enough isn’t it? But to see in a
deeper sense, our learning’s are indeed wasted because of our low strategies to promote it. Many of
the programs in the public sector are more focused on other programs which are less prioritized by
education policies. So as our cry for our wasted knowledge which may include our country to fall by
implicit crimes and terrorism. Shall we wait to exclude the knowledge that were given to us? Wasting
the gift of our God to learn different things which are meant to be learned? We must join and support
to educate more minds. Share the knowledge, for it is a worldly aspect of learning continuum on a
larger scope, our world – promoted with education, because I do lead to teach minds, touch hearts, and
transform lives. I am educated, and I will do share education for my fellow Filipinos; iLead!
