Event Details

We can all help in our own little way.  Let's make education possible by helping deserving scholars at the University of the Philippines.   Please help us prevent stories like that of Kristel Tejada, the U.P. student who unfortunately took her life because of the inability to pay tuition.

 

Tragically, in Kristel's case, she only needed $250 (PHP10,000) to pay her tuition for one semester.

Tuition at U.P. is based on the income bracket of the student's family.  For the U.P. Diliman, Los Baños and Manila campuses, students with an annual family income of:

 

Over P1,000,000 – pays P1,500 per unit;

Between P1,000,000 and P500,001 – pays P1,000 per unit;

Between P500,000 and P250,001 – pays P600 per unit;

Between P250,000 and P135,001 – pays P300 per unit;

Between P135,000 and P80,001 – receives free tuition; and

Less than P80,000 – receives free tuition plus P12,000 per semester stipend.

 

There are currently 50 other students at U.P. Manila that are in the same situation as Kristel that need help.

At U.P., we were taught about social responsibility.  Thank you U.P. for helping us get to where we are now. This event is open to all who simply want to give something back and help others (Hello Atenistas out there!).  Many thanks in advance to those who will be joining us and to those who will be supporting this project.

 *VENUE 

La Biblioteca de Tequila, Chef Sandoval’s first Tequila library (the only Tequila Library in NYC). They have 400 Tequilas. Chef Sandoval's business partner is Placido Domingo (yes the opera star). La Biblioteca is a "hidden/secret bar"so best to look for the sign that says ZENGO (the restaurant) at 622 Third Ave. Go in and the staircase on the left side will lead you to La Biblioteca. On March 29, Chef Sandoval at Zengo features the Philippines so if you're craving for lumpia, bacolod BBQ chicken or Beef steak tagalog check out Zengo and meet us at La Biblioteca.
