Manos Nail Lounge at Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City has chosen Mano Amiga Academy as one of their beneficiaries this Christmas. Here's a letter from the Manos team to see how you can help underprivileged students be more tech-savvy.
We absolutely love Christmas! The parols, decor, reunions with loved
ones, food, music and gifts add to the already cheerful nature of the
Filipinos. This holiday is the perfect cap to each year because it
reminds us that in so many wonderful, beautiful ways, we are truly truly
blessed. It is also a chance for us to be blessings to others. This 2012, Manos Nail Lounge is partnering with Mano Amiga Philippines,
an organization that provides high-quality education to children from
low-income families. But more than just providing education, Mano Amiga
is a complete development center with the objective of transforming the
lives of families and individuals. The organization helps students
become good citizens who are involved in their communities and
responsible for their own future.**
Mano Amiga is close to our hearts because we've volunteered in
their community in the past, and the daughter of one of our nail
technicians is currently a grade school scholar. We share their belief
that every Filipino child can shine like gold given the right
opportunities, and that if we offer the best to the least in our
society, we can realize the true potential of our country.
Mano Amiga Academy currently caters to 97 students from Nursery to 3rd
grade, with plans of growing one level every year. The school plans to
eventually have at least 1,050 students from Kindergarten to 12th grade.
For school year 2013, they've
expressed the need for assistance to upgrade their IT facilities, which
includes purchasing new LCD projectors and laptops.
With YOUR help, we hope to raise enough funds to provide them with such.
From 25 November to 30 December 2012, a portion of sales from any
massage service you avail of at Manos Nail Lounge will go to the Mano
Tis the season! We'd love to give you more pampering so that we as one Manos family, can give others more hope. :)
Our mission is to provide education and development services tailored to the needs of the Filipino community that would empower each family to transform their lives and break out from poverty.
Mano Amiga Academy, Taguig City is the latest addition to over 30 Mano Amiga schools distributed around seven countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico & Venezuela), with more than 17,000 students and parents undergoing formation.
