About the Program

Established in 1993, the KIDS Program has been the heart and unifying force of UP JMA. Every peso the organization generates is dedicated towards supporting the education of 41 bright, yet underprivileged, elementary and high school students. These kids are selected from the poverty-stricken area of Barangay Loyola Heights in Katipunan who belong to the Tahanan ng Panginoon - Our Lady of Pentecost Parish.

 

Our Mission

Alongside monthly financial stipends for our kids and their families, the program organizes fun and exciting events designed to enrich their childhood experience and aid in their holistic growth, value formation, and meaningful development. The program also fosters deeper relationships between the kids, their families, and the members of the organization

COVID-19 Response

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, The UP JMA KIDS Program continues to provide for the holistic growth of 41 bright yet underprivileged kids by assisting theirs and their families’ needs and executing academic and recreational activities, all while bringing the advocacy of KIDS closer to the heart of each UP JMA member.

With the lockdowns we continue to face, many of the kids and their families battle not only with the pandemic, but also with their limited sources of income.
Should you be interested in extending your support in cash or in kind, please do not hesitate to contact us.
