Paul was born and raised in a poor barangay (village) in the Philippines where access to basic education can be a key out of poverty. Upon settling in Canada, he was academically exposed to human rights, development, social justice and indigenous issues. Paul has visited various developing countries and has seen first hand the social and economic struggles and inequalities people are facing today. He believes that education is the most valuable tool that can be used to empower children and communities to reach their full potential.
