Monterrey (Mexico) June 17, 2005. This past May 13th, the
Department of Education organized a “Scholastic Olympics” for sixth grade
Guillermo Carmona Garza, a student at the Mano Amiga School
in Monterrey, won first place when competing against students from
18 other schools.
The outstanding performance of one of its students
is yet another encouraging sign for Mano Amiga schools, which
strive to be centers for community development in low-income areas.
To attain this goal, they dedicate themselves to forming the
human person both as an individual and as a member
of his family and of society.

the Altius Foundation, sponsored by the Legionaries of Christ. Presently,
they serve more than 12,000 students in Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela,
Chile, El Salvador, and Argentina.
