Children helping children: No help is too small
November last year, Mommy Amigas launched the iCan Change for Change campaign- a fundraising campaign that encouraged the Everest community to save their loose change in order to help provide scholarships for the students in Mano Amiga Academy.
As a result of the generosity of the Everest students, they were able to raise enough funds to provide a full-year scholarship for Rhian Belle Ynona Balwit, a kindergarten student in Mano Amiga Academy.
It is truly heartwarming to see how Everest kids are openhandedly helping other kids to have a better future and a quality education like they do.
Rhian together with her mom, personally thanked the Mommy Amigas and the Everest students for sending her to school for another year.
During the Assembly, the Everest students didn’t know who Rhian was until she spoke to express her heartfelt gratitude for their generosity in providng her a full-year scholarship. The students were more than surprised, they could not believe how far their loose change have gone. They were inspired how great a small act of kindness can set the foundation for someone’s brighter future.
In many ways both big and small, children helping other children make the world a better place.
