Community Extension

Integral to the educative mission of LCUP is addressing the needs of the Church with a special option for the poor.

People and local communities have been benefited by its varied extension programs: community building, livelihood programs, literacy and numeracy programs, health and sanitation, day care centers, night high schools, environmental advocacies, and other economic enterprises.

Under Project H.O.P.E. (Holistic Opportunity Program on Education), LCUP designed and implemented an alternative learning system for youth offenders through the review, assessment, and evaluation of the skills and academic competencies of juvenile delinquents. Residents of its adopted community in barangay San Gabriel in Malolos are beneficiaries of the “Lingkod Pamayanan” project. Northville 9 residents in Calumpit are likewise recipients of the University’s extension services such as the Gabay Pamayanan ni Mother Rita, Lipat Kaalaman, Taas Noo: Pinoy Ako, ABAKADA ni Mother Consuelo, and Luntiang Pinoy projects in coordination with DSWD, CEAP-Bulacan and the local government of Calumpit. Senior citizens and other residents of adopted communities were given medical treatment and assistance during medical missions and feeding programs. Annual “Via Crucis sa Ilog” and Institutional Tree Planting are also implemented as part of the environmental advocacy program of the University. /MCDSegismundo
