In Pictures: Gen.T's Connect To Change Event In The Philippines
For our Connect To Change event in Manila we partnered with Mano Amiga Philippines, an organisation co-founded by Gen.T honouree Lynn Pinugu. Mano Amiga provides underprivileged youth with education opportunities, serving as a catalyst for community transformation by providing low-income families with scholarships and opportunities for a sustainable livelihood.
Gen.T honourees Richard Heydarian, Sara Black, and Mito Fabie held workshops on journalism, photography, and poetry and music respectively. Through these activities, the students were exposed to different career paths and learnt how to creatively express themselves. After the classes, students and teachers were treated to a lunch from Gen.T honouree Abba Napa's restaurant, Manam.
The mission of the Connect To Change programme is to bring the Gen.T community together to create positive impact, partnering with local charities across Asia and activating the skills of our honourees to benefit the charity and help its founders achieve their goals.
