The Ugnayan ng Pahinungód is the official volunteer program of the University of the Philippines. Our mission is to make the University a more caring community that is bound together by a commitment to the empowerment of people and selfless service to the nation.
Sa totoo lang, nakaka-proud po na maging part ng ganitong experience. Kapag nakikita mong may bunga yung mga pinaghirapan, tapos alam mo pang makakatulong iyon sa mga tao/may malaking significance sa buhay nila, it makes you feel that what you’re doing is not in vain, and that your efforts will soon bring change for the betterment of the community

Knowing that meron kang knowledge and skills na pwede mong i-share is the thing that motivated me to volunteer. There is satisfaction in knowing that may naibigay ka.

As a graduate of UPOU, I have always been looking forward to give back to the institution. Knowing and understanding the tradition of Ugnayan ng Pahinungod, I have always been hoping to serve as a volunteer.

Marami tayong pwedeng gawin. Marami tayong pwedeng buksan na mga pinto. Yung mga kakayahan niyo, gamitin natin para mas marami rin tayong mainspire, mas marami rin tayong maudyok na tumulong din.

I learned that volunteering is one of the things to keep our mental health in pace. Unlike the physical volunteering, UPOU’s bridge is quite new, amazing and a fulfilling one wherein you will know a lot of people and learn a lot of new things. Even though it’s online support, giving a little piece of your time to learners in need is really amazing.
