University Student Government (USG) recognizes its vital role in
promoting students’ holistic formation through different programs

students, including community development projects. On the other

organization of Mechanical Engineering students, which caters to the

which are in line with their field of profession.
This year, in line with the University’s mission of bridging faith and scholarship in service of the poor, the USG, together with the DLSU Center for Social Concern and Action spearheaded the Child Friendly Spaces Project. It is an advocacy in line with the UN Millennium development goals to give safety and security to the children in deprived communities by creating child friendly spaces for them. The space consists of a daycare, study area, mini library and a computer room. The first child friendly space was constructed this school year in Baranggay 704 in Malate Manila. Through the project, the USG may be able to attain sustainability of their efforts not only to help the children but the community as a whole. Together with MES through the Automized 2012: The Greenlight Project, they plan to expand and create more child friendly spaces in the upcoming school year.
