The 42nd General Assembly of the Haribon Foundation concluded on April 25 through the support and efforts of the students from the Good Karma team of the University of the Philippines, Industrial Engineering (IE) Club.
IE Club is an academic, student organization at the College of Engineering of UP. As part of its external affairs, Good Karma is a community development project that aims to help different beneficiaries by means of selling specialized t-shirts.
The shirts come in five colors symbolizing five different advocacies: red for the fight for life or public health; blue is the fight for seas; white, the fight for education; black, the fight for light; and green for the fight for the trees and the environment. Haribon is the beneficiary for the fight for trees and the environment, or the green shirts.
To further support Haribon, Good Karma provided manpower, venue and logistics for Haribon’s General Assembly. It became an opportunity for the team to learn about the future projects of Haribon, its members and ambassadors, and the values it is built on.
The efforts of Good Karma wished to reciprocate Haribon when it brought its “Biodiversity on Wheels” program to children from Payatas, Quezon City in support of the club’s project of increasing environmental awareness of the kids through lectures, videos, and activities.
