Off to a good start

After a year of waiting, the first Mano Amiga Academy in the Philippines will now officially start this September 2008 in Taguig City. Mayor Freddie Tinga and his wife, Kaye, graciously lent us a temporary building while we're raising funds for the construction of the campus. For the first three years, we'll be using a steel frame building built by Habitat for Humanity in the Rotaryville Family Townhomes (located in FTI). In preparation for the school opening, Mano Amiga volunteers recently painted the classrooms and helped transform the building's bare walls into the perfect learning environment. :)
