A Farmer’s Child wins the ISM scholarship in 2012, gains Harvard acceptance in 2017!

Meet Romnick Blanco, the 7th out of 9 sons of a rice and vegetable farmer and housewife.

May this photogallery bless you as you get to know his inspiring journey from being a child with humble beginnings at the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains to becoming a Filipino scholar at the prestigious International School of Manila. He is the first farmer’s child who achieved admission into this prestigious educational institution in its 92-year history!

Five years has gone by so quickly! He finally graduated from high school at the International School Manila on May 26, 2017.

The LORD GOD Almighty has poured out His blessings upon our precious GreenEarth child even more!

Rom won FOUR full-ride scholarships —Harvard College, the King Scholarship of Dartmouth College , the Freeman-Asian Scholarship of Wesleyan University and New York University-Abu Dhabi.

Rom accepted Harvard.

It was in Dec. 2010 when Rom braved a bridge-less river and kilometers of unpaved roads two hours each way from his home, at the risk of drowning many times during the rainy season, in his quest for a brighter future through education. By January 2011, he became a sponsored child of our foundation. As his counterpart to receiving monetary support, he started attending English and computer literacy classes as well as Bible studies at the farm. Time flies so quickly! It has been these many years of intensely mentoring him both academically and spiritually as our GreenEarth beneficiary.

The LORD has lifted Him higher! His grit, determination and humble obedient spirit has brought him blessings.

This is an honor and momentous occasion for us all who have been bound together by our mission/ vision. The LORD has lifted up the entire rural poor community that we serve at GreenEarth, of which Rom is a part of.

With Rom’s enormous blessings, the Lord has shown us a mere glimpse of what He has in store for our people at GreenEarth ahead. The best is yet to come!

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!”    Jeremiah 29: 11
