Project Bata, Mag-aral Ka
In 2009, the sorority started “Project Bata, Mag-aral Ka”, its flagship program which aims to teach and inspire children in low–income families around the University. “Project Bata, Mag-aral Ka”, or PBMK, offers an interactive learning experience to indigent children as well as instills in them the value and importance of education for a brighter future.
In order to raise funds for our projects geared towards helping the community, and the sorority’s internal operations, we have previously held different fundraising events such as HIRAYA: An Online Benefit Concert and Frozen II Block Screening.
Past Anniversary Projects
Changemakers: Redefining Boundaries
March 1, 2021
An hour-long webinar of stories from amazing women who have made a difference by using their talents, strengths, and influence in serving the community.
The speakers are Sigma Deltans excelling in different fields such as sustainable transportation, social impact, and charity through art.
Make A Difference
Unfortunately, the pandemic did not permit us to follow through with our planned activities last March 2020.
In lieu of the unforeseen circumstances, we sent out envelopes containing school supplies which were distributed to our supposed PBMK students from the Metro Vargas Community. Using these materials, they will be guided by their parents and the community teachers while schools remained closed during this pandemic.
PBMK Scholarship Fair
February 23, 2019
A career and scholarship fair to help kids from Grades 5-6 interactively learn about the different Senior High School strands that will help them achieve their dream careers.
We want to show them their options and opportunities to equip them with the right tools and information to plan their futures, and accomplish their dreams.
April – May 2018
Through “Lihok”, meaning movement or action, we wanted to challenge everyone to move, and to use their talents, passions, and excellence to empower others.
Our projects included: Lakas Lokal, a unique festival promoting local music, dance, arts and cuisine; and the 8th run of our flagship project PBMK.
March 4, 2017
We revisited our past students who have already started pursuing education as a result of PBMK.
We taught them indigenous Philippine culture, music and art which aims to build their sense of community.
We also hosted a vertical gardening seminar with basic financial management for the parents. This aims to give them an additional source of income, and hopefully lessen the need for the kids to work instead of study.
The Diliman Initiative
A campaign that aims to make the UP community realize that every action counts—that collective small actions create significant changes.
We focused our efforts on helping the faculty of CAL and CSSP rebuild after the Faculty Center fire. We also helped improve upon the waste management systems of our kiosks on-campus.
For every Php 200 dog tag donation to the Diliman Initiative Fund, a free UP PowerCard and free admission to a Diliman Initiative Party was provided.
