Last November 23, hardworking officers and members of Business Management Society (BMS) of De La Salle University- Manila put together a memorable event that opened the eyes of the Mano Amiga Academy scholars to a world of opportunities and brighter future.
For an early Christmas celebration, committed and enthusiastic BMS members hosted a university tour for 4th grade scholars.
“This is an important and meaningful activity for the scholars. BMS did not only teach the students to dream big and aspire for the best College education opportunities, the experience also motivated the Mano Amiga students and their families to continue working hard in order to reach this goal,” Grade 4 Homeroom Teacher She Maquiran said.
BMS, a leading professional organization in DLSU-Manila, collaborated with Mano Amiga in fulfilling its mission of fostering passionate student leaders, maximizing student potentials and providing developmental opportunities for La Sallian business students.
“The aim of the immersion activity is to provide our members an avenue where they could gain exposure and insight into the lives of children from underprivileged communities.” Assistant Vice President for Marketing and Socio-Civic, Ms. Patricia Verona shared. “We hope the experience helped in fostering a culture of generosity through the gift-giving activity and by sharing our time and talents. We hope that even through a small way, we made a difference in the lives of these children by inspiring them to aim high. For our members, we hope the event encouraged them to be of service to others, and to inculcate in them the readiness to help. We look forward to having more regular activities with them.”
