Help young women obtain employment
Punlaan School in Manila offers young women a two-year course in culinary arts and hospitality services.
A group of Toronto volunteers has been helping Punlaan since 2015, raising $500/student scholarships for transportation and hands-on cooking class supplies.
We want to expand the number and scope of scholarships. Punlaan has a proven formula for success with 100 per cent of graduates obtaining employment since 1975.
