“Through GMK, we learned the basics of running a business and helped us develop our social skills. The program taught us to be more confident of ourselves especially during class recitations and in dealing with our mentors and teachers. We will always be thankful for these opportunities that GMK has given us.”
– Alessandra Montano & Wendy Fajardo, grade 5 mentees from Kapt. Jose Cardones Elementary School

Brigada Eskwela 2015: Telus Days Of Giving
“We are currently travelling around the world, after leaving our careers behind in England.
We set off on this journey with a mission to be able to participate in as much voluntary work as possible, and in some way, try to be able to make a small difference around the world.
Our experience volunteering with Hands on Manila lived up to our expectations plus more. This non profit organisation is truly inspirational and we are so proud we were able to be part of the Brigada Eskwala project with HOM. We were made to feel part of the team immediately and the Executive Director, Rox, went out of her way to ensure we had a fantastic time whilst we were at HOM.
The main bulk of work we completed consisted of preparing for the main event at Tenement elementary school. We all worked as part of a team and felt like we accomplished a lot during the time we were together.
The actual event was huge, and like nothing we have ever participated in before. It was so touching to see so many volunteers working together in order to help the community, and be able to give these children the education they deserve. We are so proud that we were able to be part of such a special event, it was a very rewarding experience, and a memory that we will never forget.
Thank you so much to everyone at HOM that made this possible for us!”
