Anihan’s new extension building consists of a science laboratory a computer room, a mock bedroom for the Housekeeping NC II qualification, additional classrooms, offices, and a bigger faculty room as well as more spacious dining areas for students and staff.

Every year, Anihan gives out full-tuition scholarship grants to young women from lower-income families to enable them to study and then be immediately employed after graduation. With this new facility, Anihan can increase its number of beneficiaries from 120 to 270 every year.

The construction of Anihan’s new extension building was made possible through the donations of Anihan Livelihood Center, Conferenza Episcopale Italiana, Doña Elena, Philam Foundation, San Miguel Corporation, S.C. Johnson, United Graphic Expression Corporation (UGE CORP), 8990 Holdings, Inc., and the following individuals, companies, and organizations:

Among the event’s attendees were Anihan’s industry partners who generously contributed their respective special dishes and treats for the buffet: Chiara's Gelato Cakes, Donappetit Cakes and Pastries, Flour Jar, Mary Grace, Pegi Waffles, The Palms Country Club, The Pigpen, and Romulo Café. Ms. Pauline Espiritu, the program host, is an Anihan volunteer as well as an advocate of medical health for healthcare practitioners and a marketing practitioner.

Established in 1986, Anihan continues to carry out its mission of making quality education and training accessible to women from the lower income sector, helping them to find in themselves the emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual courage to make a positive change in their own lives and help improve the lives of those around them.

The occasion was marked by gratitude to all who collaborate with Anihan. Students and staff were lucky to have among the guests Ms Lali Sastre, one of the first who came to the Philippines from Spain in 1965 to start the apostolic work of Opus Dei among women, spreading the message of finding God in ordinary, daily life. For her and for the whole Anihan family, the words of St. Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei, rang true once more: Dream and your dreams will fall short.
