Math Teacher, Engineer Siblings Build Mansion for Tricycle Driver Dad and Dressmaker Mom

“Education is the key to success.”

Is this already cliché or does it still apply even in this modern world? While many would say that you can find succeed in life even without education, the reality is that most people who found success in life were able to complete their college degree.

Recently, a family went viral after the children built a mansion for their parents, a tricycle driver and a dressmaker, after they found success in life.

On PESO SENSE, a popular financial literacy Facebook page in the Philippines, the children shared the inspiring story of how they were able to build this dream house for their parents despite being poor when they were younger.

“Share ko lang po ❤️❤️❤️ Isa pong tricycle driver ang tatay ko (nakikiboundary lang din, walang sariling tricycle). Ang nanay ko naman po ay mananahi (pakyawan). Yung kita po nila sa isang araw ay hindi fix, depende sa gawa at tyaga, ayun lang ang maiiuwing pera. Sobrang hirap po ng pinagdaanan, naging working student kami ng kapatid ko at lahat kami ay pinilit na maging scholar.

Sa tulong at awa naman ng Diyos, nakapagtapos po kaming apat. Ako po ay Elecrical Engineer, ang pangalawa ay Civil Engineer, ang pangatlo ay Math teacher at ang bunso ay Mechanical Engineer. Sa tulong po ng dasal, tyaga at sipag, nakapasa din po kaming lahat sa board exam (1 take).

This sender did not mention his/her name but the story would touch so many people’s hearts. A lot of netizens expressed hope that they could also find success in life and later also provide their parents with a comfortable home, a better life.

Siguro po alam ni Lord kung gaano ang sakripisyo ng mga magulang namin para lang maitawid kami sa tagumpay. At ayan din po, sa awa din ng Diyos, nakapagpatayo na din kami ng sariling bahay. Buong buhay po namin, nakatira lang kami sa isang maliit na apartment, ilang hakbang lang nasa kusina at banyo ka na. 😅 Natutulog kami sa sala. 😊

Eto po ay patunay na may Diyos. Nakikita nya ang lahat. Kailangan lang po nating manalig at sabayan ng tiwala, sipag at tyaga. Kaya po natin maabot ang lahat, kahit kapos, kahit mahirap. Salamat mga ka-PESO 😇😇😇.”

Many netizens were inspired by their story.

Aaaaw! Kakainspire po ng story nyo. God knows our struggles and acknowledges our hardwork. Salute po sa inyong magkakapatid na di sinayang ang hirap ng magulang, at mas salute po sa mga magulang nyo na di sumuko sa laban. Sana lahat ng mga anak ganito. 🙏” one netizen reacted.

Wow congrats sa inyong magkapatid. Hanga ako sa inyo kasi alam nyo kung ano ang dapat unahin. Yong ibang kabataan, madaling sumuko. Yong iba nman after silang mapagtapos ng mga magulang nila ay inuuna ang pagbuo ng sariling pamilya sa halip na bigyang pansin nman ang mga magulang. God bless you,” another commented.

Congratulations po!
