This post intended solely to disclose the identity of the people behind the 2009 Project of PEBA for the sake of transparency and simplicity. We are aware that PEBA's incorporation is underway, and it is our honor to serve the OFW's around the world. Just as we did last year, when we introduced the men and women working behind PEBA, this year we are doing the same.

PEBA was launched the 1st of July 2008, over a year ago. Since then, good and great things happened through the support and trust of the many Filipino's, OFW's and Expats around the world.

Today, we broke one simple goal - to reach the 20 nominee list by the end of July. This very moment, even as we're still moving towards the end of the month, we already have 24 amazing, incredible, remarkable, talented, and yes, the best and inspiring OFW and Expats nominees.

Read their thoughts and musings, watch their videos and photos, feel the warmth and the tenderness and the kindness in their emotions, moved by the true stories and genuine challenges they face each day. From the tiny country of Palau, to the war zone of Afghanistan, and the blazing heat of Saudi and Qatar, and the beautiful country of Dubai, to the cold season of the down under Australia. Swing from Singapore to Japan and Taiwan. Learn from two Filipina thoughts from Europe, both expats in Italy and France as well as stories from Spain. Be captivated by the thoughts of two Filipina US base bloggers hailed from the state of California and Georgia.

This is PEBA. The one and only place where the best and inspiring blogs of an OFW and Pinoy Expats are showcase for the world to read, and to be honored.
