Mano Amiga Academy

Quality education and holistic formation

Mano Amiga is an institution dedicated to providing quality education, holistic formation and other necessary support to its students. Its curriculum follows the Kindergarten to 12th Grade model and educators use the Integral Formation Program. This program focuses on the harmonious development of all dimensions of the human person: intellectual, emotional, moral, social and spiritual.

MPIC employees’ involvement with Mano Amiga began in 2008. This consisted of providing the students with necessary learning tools, such as school supplies, books and uniforms; and the involvement of MPIC employees in part-time personal coaching of the students. With the full support of MPIC’s management, this project has now blossomed into a much more tangible and high-impact involvement.

In 2011, the MPIC Foundation sought to make a more significant impact on the children of Mano Amiga and manifested a deeper commitment to them by enlarging their pool of scholars through an endowment fund that would ensure 30 kids getting the full benefit of education.

These 30 students will receive excellent primary and secondary education through a scholarship that covers per-pupil operational expenses of the school as well as miscellaneous fees and expenses on student enrichment activities. In addition to ensuring the education of these students, this new grant from MPIF will also support the teachers’ benefits and training opportunities.

“I found a new sense of purpose being surrounded and supported by like-minded, extraordinary people whose work has been a labor of love for our students and their families. There is tremendous happiness in making others happy. Working for the Mano Amiga families is an enriching and fulfilling experience— to have inspired the energetic students to dream bigger, study and pray harder, trust God more, do better in life and be truly happy.”

“Mano Amiga has taught me to be fearless but humble, to be generous but reasonable. I love working in Mano Amiga that I don’t consider it work anymore. It is a form of prayer to my God. Everyday miracles unfold right before my eyes. Children learning to read, gaining more self confidence , parents learning to be more prayerful and bringing out their hidden talents. Mano Amiga gave me a deeper purpose in life.”
