Who We Are 

The Ugnayan ng Pahinungód is the volunteer service program of the University of the Philippines.  Since 1994, we have been providing opportunities for our students, faculty, alumni, staff, retirees, and partners to serve the underserved and marginalized. 

“I came into the UP presidency with a simple reminder that our main mission is to serve the Filipino people.

We have to show the Filipino people that they were right in investing in us. They were right in thrusting upon this University the hopes and dreams of our people." 

UP President Angelo Jimenez during the 30th Pahinungód Anniversary Exhibit Launch last February 27, 2024 at the UP Parola Fine Arts Gallery, UP Diliman.  Read the full article by Celeste Ann Llaneta, UP MPRO | UP Ulat Volume 1 Issue 1

The Pillars of Our Work

The Ugnayan ng Pahinungód, the volunteer service program of UP, deploys UP alumni as volunteer teachers called Gurong Pahinungód to underserved communities for one school year. 

This year, through a Memorandum of Agreement between UP and the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), we have deployed volunteer teachers to areas in BARMM.  

We need your support to be able to send more volunteers to these areas and reach learners who need help. 

Through your contributions, our volunteer teachers will be provided with their daily allowance and other needs to fulfill their mission of helping provide quality education to the Filipino youth.
