Cultural Festivals filled Community Centers with sights and sounds from China and Mexico earlier this year. Through Manos’ core Cultural Education Program, students at remote site watched their community centers transform into these countries over four weeks. Culminating with a Cultural Party filled with music, food and festivities. They enjoyed a dragon dance and fan dance in China and experienced the magic of floating lanterns. As they studied Mexico, children enjoyed a carnival filled with games, prizes, food, music and fun!
Fun-filled Manos Olympics Camp
In May and June, Manos hosted its annual Olympics Camps, where children form 4 teams representing the four countries studied that year in the Cultural Education Program. The Olympics Camps were held at both Mexico and China site and were filled with fun, team-focused competitions.
Congratulations to our Students!
This Summer, 12 top students of poor, remote villages in China, got the opportunity of a lifetime. The SEE Summer Challenge helped send these students on a field trip to Beijing through Manos’ Student Educational Experience Program, aka SEE. They worked hard all school year to earn this award. Thanks to our SEE Program sponsors, these students were able to visit their nation’s capitol, museums and key sites in Beijing. They explored college life at a University and even visited the Great Wall of China!
Adventures of the Teaching In China Program
This past Summer, the Teaching In China Program was successfully hosted in partnership with Worlin International School, where children enjoyed an international experience participating in a Summer Camp focused on the English language and fun cultural activities & games. Culminating in a farewell party to remember, Campers and Teachers alike will always treasure the adventures they shared during this Summer’s Teaching In China Program!
Magical Performances of the Senior Choir Program
Each Summer, Manos meets the musical embrace of the Senior Choir’s Summer Concert! The Senior Choir had been practicing all year long in the garden of one of their dear members, and their performance filled the village with music, culture, and yes, even a bit of what some might call “magic.” It was a truly special and memorable event for all!
