KIDS helping KIDS

The Everest Academy students recently held two fundraising events to help buy armchairs for the students of Mano Amiga Academy.

Led by the Everest 4th graders, the girls sold delicious baked treats while the boys spent two afternoons washing cars. The students raised a combined amount of P18,000, enough to buy 21 arm chairs for the school.

During the turnover of funds, Development Director Lynn Pinugu thanked the Everest students for their generosity and hard work. “There are public school students who have to sit on sacks of rice because the class sizes are so big that the school does not have enough arm chairs for everyone. This is one of the reasons why I consider the Mano Amiga students very fortunate. The Everest community has always been actively involved in ensuring that these scholars will have an opportunity to learn in an optimal environment that would not have been possible otherwise.”
