Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children in the areas Manos serves lack access to resources and educational opportunities, compounded by a cycle of generational poverty, which is difficult for them to break free from due to various obstacles in access and equity.

Cultural Education Program

This Program incorporates fun educational activities that build life skills, while teaching global and cultural awareness. Over the years, we have studied more than 20 countries with the children we serve. Community Centers transform into the country being studied. Children enter the Centers with their Manos "Passports" and get an international traveling experience, brought directly to them at their community centers. Volunteers share the sights and sounds of different countries through planned activities for each country:
•General education about each country (geography, population, language, history).
•Arts & crafts themed on each country
•Indoor and outdoor games, including sports from the four countries
•A Cultural Party, where the community centers are further transformed for a grand finale event

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

The Student Educational Experience Program, or SEE, awards top students and dedicated volunteers with a trip to their nation's capital city.

In China, students who achieve top academic excellence in our partner schools (located in the remote areas we serve) are awarded with a trip to Beijing. Students earn the opportunity of a lifetime to explore the modern streets of Beijing, Tienanmen Square and visit the Great Wall of China.

In Mexico, Manos students and dedicated volunteers are awarded with a trip to Mexico City, where they can explore their capital, ancient Mayan Pyramids, the Basilica, and Chapultepec.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to provide opportunities and support that will inspire children and volunteers to break the cycle of poverty they face, and progress towards a better life.

We meet this goal through enriching youth programs based on cultural educational experiences, like that of our Model Travel Program and the SEE Program, scholarships, and relief efforts. It is through all of our programs that we are not only sharing ideas, cultures and education, but also teaching the life skills of self-management, communication, global and cultural awareness, volunteerism and education. As children experience Manos' youth programs, filled with amazing childhood experiences and memories, and the promotion of life skills, we believe that they will build confidence, self-esteem, independence, and aspire to continue to learn and grow.

Manos is comprised of dedicated, passionate volunteers who have a depth of experience in youth programs, non-profit administration, management, and program development. In addition, many of our onsite volunteers come directly from the communities being served. We are able to provide our services completely free of charge because we are completely volunteer run, at every level of our organization. Manos began in 2001 and has only grown stronger over the years, successfully implementing these strategies for over 20 years.

After two decades of service, we are now seeing children in our program moving onto higher education and coming back to volunteer to bring Manos programs to the children in their community. Our goal is to build this momentum and continue this rotation of children breaking the cycle of poverty and coming back as local volunteers to benefit the next generation of children in their community. A long term effect will be that more children are empowered by education and the community as a whole will progress.
