Pizza and progress: Wonder supporters visit Philippines partner schools

Friday, May 5, 2017

Sharing skills is a core part of educational progress, and this January our amazing supporters Clara Morocutti, Domi Thompson and Aza Cabrera embodied that notion when they went to visit Anihan Technical School in the Philippines. Clara took the lead in sharing her skills in making authentic Italian pizza, while Domi and Aza got to meet Anihan’s students and see the impact of the project they have been supporting first hand.

Anihan is part of the Foundation for Professional Training Incorporated (FPTI), Wonder’s educational partner in the Philippines. FPTI awards scholarships to disadvantaged women, allowing them to train for jobs in the hospitality industry and to break the cycle of poverty through decent employment. Students receive key vocational skills training, quality industrial placements and a mentoring scheme to help them succeed both personally and professionally, leading to an excellent rate of post-training employment.
