Empowering Change: USC Graduate Founds Cherish Co. to Transform Lives of Filipino Orphans

Joanna Maniti, inspired by her high school mission trips to the Philippines, harnessed her USC education to create meaningful change. In 2020, she founded Cherish Co., a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of orphans in the Philippines. Graduating in 2021 with a degree in business administration, Maniti's vision was to apply her business acumen to the nonprofit sector, focusing on elevating the lives of orphans and foster care children. Cherish Co. not only provides a safe haven for children but also educates them in vital subjects like math and English. Maniti's dedication to this cause and her ability to translate her academic learning into real-world impact demonstrates the power of combining passion with education to make a tangible difference in the world.
