Last Saturday, April 12, Mano a Mano celebrated 20 years in operation at the DS Event Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. More than 320 Mano a Mano supporters attended, along with 5 staff from our counterpart organizations in Bolivia.
20th Anniversary Celebration Results
As part of the celebration, our goal was to raise enough funding to build a school in Bolivia. And, thanks to everyone that attended, we exceeded our goal!
This was Mano a Mano’s 5th consecutive year of holding a celebration/gala in April, and each year we have been successful in raising enough money to build a much-needed project in Bolivia.
Below is a slideshow of photos from the event (thanks to Mano a Mano volunteer Charles Skrief for taking the pictures!).

Making a Difference in Rural Bolivia
As part of the event, we also showed a video highlighting Bolivians from rural areas talking about the impact that Mano a Mano projects have had for them and their communities (special thanks to William Wroblewski for making the video).
