Showcasing finalists from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, this series promises to deliver inspiration while challenging viewers to select just one as their favorite to win the coveted award.

I am knocking on your hearts, asking for your support for the entry from the Philippines. Please vote for THE ONLY WAY IS UP.

Please vote before the November 12th deadline and make the country proud!!!

Filipinos are urged to unite and vote for the country’s lone entry among the 12 finalists from around the globe vying for the BBC (British Broadcasting Corp.) World Challenge 2010 title because its ram pumps have helped thousands of poor villagers.

The Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation Inc. based in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City, is the lone Philippine finalist, for its perfected model of the hydraulic ram pump that has brought water to numerous remote barangays in Negros and various parts of the country. The Negros Occidental provincial government and various local governments have also used the AIDFI ramp pumps to bring water to remote barangays. The foundation has made a big difference in the lives of the poor.

AIDFI chief executive officer, Auke Idzenga, said Peru is ahead of the Philippines in the online voting but if Filipinos unite we can create a tsunami of votes.

Go Philippines! Angat Pinoy!
