Inspiring 12-Year-Old Kid Builds School to Help Struggling Children in the Neighborhood

He is just 12 years old but Leonardo Nicanor Quinteros is already the teacher and principal at a private school that provides free education to kids in his impoverished neighborhood.

Quinteros lives in the poor town of Las Piedritas, near San Juan in Argentina. Last year, the young boy noticed that many of his peers are either struggling to keep up in school or already out of school, spending more time in the streets as they have more fun playing than learning.

Seeing the need to get these kids back in school, Quinteros asked his grandmother for help in building a school where everyone gets to study for free. She agreed and let him build one beside her house.

Quinteros invited many of his peers to move to his school where he acts both as teacher and principal. The dedicated young man is still in secondary school but his school has already become a second home for many students.

Today, there are 40 students enrolled in Quinteros’ school. Most of them are younger than him but there are also adults who took advantage of the free tuition offer to get back to school and learn.

The school itself is not much, really. It’s just a small building with a small library, lockers, and a bell that sounds recess yet the inspiring school has made a lot of difference to the students.

Because of its less formal setting, many of the students loved going to school. In fact, many of the students no longer miss their classes because they have fun learning in Quinteros’ school.

And when his students could not attend the regular classes in the morning, the young student/teacher/principal readily extends the class hours so he could accommodate night classes so they can catch up with the lessons!

The 12-year-old boy’s school has impressed a lot of netizens who hoped that other people, older ones especially, would also do their part in sharing what they can with others. Perhaps he might even find a sponsor for his school, so he can have better facilities and teachers, right?

Guy Honors Girlfriend Who Stayed with Him Through Difficult College Days

A guy honors his girlfriend who stayed with him through his difficult college days, supporting and encouraging him all the way. In return, he promised that she will be there in his success, now that he finally graduated from college.

Guy Honors Loyal Girlfriend

Danniel Tubal shares how much he loves his girlfriend, Mariatherese Palma, as she had been there for him through the most difficult times in his life. Though she’s the high school campus crush, she chose him – and she had been there for him right from the start.

While many guys would say that girls are really just after their money and would pick a rich man over a poor guy anytime, Mariatherese proved that she does not need his money. In fact, it is she who shares her money with him because she knows that he only has Php20 to spend the entire day.

Mariatherese would share her own allowance with him but would often slip the money inside his bag instead of giving it to him directly. Perhaps she didn’t want him to feel embarrassed, but she would wait until he is in school to message him about the money she put in his pocket.

The civil engineering graduate expressed his appreciation that his girlfriend’s lover never faltered, even if he did not have any money to treat her to fancy restaurants because all he could afford is kwek-kwek for their date.

She was with me even I cannot afford to buy her gifts on our anniversaries. She was with me when failed 3 subjects in midterm and almost lose hope. And I will make sure that SHE WILL BE WITH ME IN MY SUCCESS 🔥,” Danniel promised.

Congratulations on you both!
