A Filipino based Farmer’s son not only gets accepted at Harvard University but gets a full scholarship and now this is something that needs to be shared.

His education was supported by a charity named Green Earth Heritage that supports Farmer’s children. The charity also provided them with literacy and computer classes. Because of his intelligence and bright marks he got a scholarship from the charity to study at International school Manila where he excelled in every subject.
