For 65 years, the UP Economics Society has remained committed to service, excellence, and tradition. To commemorate its 65th anniversary, the society is launching “Project Shooting Star,” a donation campaign with the aim of assisting farmers in Krus na Ligas, UP Diliman. These farmers belong to the Nagkakaisang Magsasaka ng Krus na Ligas para Sa Agrikulturang Lungsod, entrusted with ancestral lands passed down through four generations.
Land disputes in Krus na Ligas have resulted in reduced farmland, presenting challenges for the farmers. Currently, only six farmers remain active, while others have pursued alternative employment due to the diminishing land area. Limited resources and tools have also hindered the adoption of modern farming methods.
Project Shooting Star seeks monetary donations to address the farmers’ immediate needs, including the purchase of new farming equipment and repairs to existing tools.
If you’d like to contribute, please use the following donation channels:

Donors are kindly requested to provide proof of their donations directly to the Ecosoc Month Facebook page: @UPEcosocMonth. Donation lines will close on September 25, 2023.
