Last year on this day, Mano a Mano was celebrating 25 years in operation; what a difference a year makes. Although 2020 has been a challenging year, Mano a Mano continues to work, which you can read about in more detail at the bottom of this post. But just for today, we want to remember what was a special day in our history, and thank the many people that partner together to make this work possible!

This video, and others, was made in partnership with TPT in 2019 to highlight Mano a Mano’s local work in the Twin Cities.

Mano a Mano Mid-Year Review: First Half of 2020

Below are a few updates from our programs (Mano a Mano is made up of 5 counterpart organizations focusing on different community development projects) through the first half of this challenging year; as our Co-Founder Segundo Velasquez writes about the personal impact of COVID-19“we stand in awe of their creativity in times of crisis and deeply appreciate their determination to move forward with the work that they know makes such a difference in the lives of so many.”
