The UP Sigma Delta Phi Sorority launched Project Bata, Mag-aral Ka in 2010 with the vision of getting destitute children motivated to go to school. The project aims to inculcate a hunger for learning, and to instill the importance of education as a platform for success. So far, the project has reached out to almost 100 indigent children in Quezon City, Philippines and they are aiming to expand some more.
