Hand in Hand: Manos and Mano Amiga Academy (update)

On behalf of Carissa, Ynez and the rest of the team, I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to our Manos Nail Lounge family for supporting our Hand in Hand campaign last December. Because of you, we were able gather funds to help Mano Amiga Academy with their tech needs this 2013! :)

Last Tuesday I personally visited Mano Amiga Academy for the check turnover. With me was Dhang, one of Manos' nail technicians whose daughter is a scholar at the school. We were warmly welcomed by Ms. Rev, their School Administrator, and Ms. Grace, their Institutional Development Manager. It was such a pleasure to sit down with them and listen to the history and plans of the school.

I was reminded of something we always say in Gawad Kalinga: "the best for the least". The Mano Amiga team is a testament to this, as they provide numerous scholars with quality education and formation that they otherwise would not have access to.

Maraming salamat, Mano Amiga, for an inspiring morning, and for being everyday heroes for these children and their families. We pray for more partnerships, more volunteers and more scholars this 2013. :)
