IBS Back-to-School Project

The UPLB Institute of Biological Sciences (IBS), in cooperation with Malinta Barangay Council and Sangguniang Kabataan, conducted a Back-to-School Project on August 17, 2023, at Barangay Malinta, Los Baños, Laguna. Spearheaded by the Extension and Public Service Committee of IBS, this activity aimed to support local elementary students preparing to return to school. The project was made possible through cash donations from IBS faculty and staff, enabling to raise funds to provide school supplies to 40 elementary students from Barangay Malinta. Each student received a back-to-school package, including a backpack, a nametag, five notebooks, four pencils or ball pens, a pair of scissors, an eraser, a sharpener, a ruler, and a set of crayons. This project is just one of the several public service activities being organized by the IBS every year.
