We congratulate Niños Hotel in Cusco for being the first hotel to open its doors to Manos Unidas youth for practicum placement. Starting in April, two MU youth have begun to work 4 hours a week in the hotel applying the skills they are learning in Phawarispa in real life environments. Marly, 18, is working in the hotel cafe and Michael, 19, is working as the doorman. Finally we have created this bridge into our community. We thank Jolanda Van den Berg, also a mother of a teenager with Autism, for opening the doors of her hotel to us and believing in the potential of youth with special needs.
