Feature Story: A school exemplifying social change recently featured our work in uplifting and transforming communities. Here’s a preview of the feature:

Mano Amiga Academy, Inc. is a non-profit school that is unique in its own way; it was established to provide education and development services to children from poor families.

Mano Amiga, which is Spanish for “helping hand,” offers 14 years of education (K-12th grade) to children of low income families. It was founded by Altius Foundation, an international non-government organization (NGO) operated by Legionaries of Christ that provide education and health and development services in over thirteen countries. It was serendipity that the group met Eleanor “Lynn” Pinugu, who helped set up Mano Amiga in 2008, holding their campus at the FTI complex in Taguig City.

The school also offers different programs particularly on health and sports. The parents are also “target audiences” as Mano Amiga also has programs on parenting and entrepreneurship.
