Improving Kids’ Lives in the Philippines
Everest School Lifts up Community’s Poor Children

Manila, November 29, 2007. In the Manila Standard Today, the Everest School was singled out for special mention as a significant source of hope for children. Everest Academy is a private Catholic international school implementing the method of Integral Formation  developed by the Legionaries of Christ. Legionary priests and consecrated members of Regnum Christi are working at the school.

The Philippines’ Taguig City recently entered into a joint venture with the Everest School in Fort Bonifacio, to build a Mano Amiga (Helping Hands) school by the year 2009.

The proposed school is one of several elements in a city-wide effort to improve conditions for children in Taguig. These elements together, including the proposed Mano Amiga school, earned the city an award granted by the President’s Council for the Welfare of Children, which recognizes the role of local government units in promoting and protecting the rights of children.

Taguig City’s mayor, Freddie Tinga, envisions the planned Mano Amiga school as the best socialized elementary school in its class.

His expectations are on the mark. In Central and South America, Mano Amiga schools are a proven
everest academy
way to break the vicious cycle of poverty and illiteracy. Since Mano Amiga schools work with the whole family, they enable children with promise to rise above their circumstances and use their success to give back to their communities later on.
