The story of Leonardo Salvador Sarao Sr., also known as Mang Adong Sarao. He was the founder of Sarao Motors, an automotive company known for designing, manufacturing, and selling Philippine Jeepneys. Though he was not the first person to alter the surplus jeepneys left over in the Philippines by the US Army after World War II, Mr. Sarao was the first entrepreneur to see this as a real business opportunity for mass transport in the country. His ground breaking vision of the Philippine Jeepney lives on to this very day as millions of Filipinos continue to rely on jeeps as a primary mode of transportation in their everyday lives.
Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth are true stories of Filipinos from all walks of life who chose to make a difference. There are currently 24 titles in this inspirational series.
ALEXINE: I read this entire series in one sitting and it was invigorating! These aren't the usual heroic stories you read online, this is a meatier selection which won't get the same viral interest. I highly recommend the entire series for the family.
