FOR THE second time in three years, the UST Civil Engineering (CE) department joined the Habitat for Humanity Philippines (HFHP) in constructing low-cost houses last August 6-8 in Caloocan City.

“(The experience will help the students) because it will complement their theoretical studies with actual situations,” CE department chairman Engr. Josefin de Alban, Jr. said.

Seventy-five graduating students and nine professors of the CE department participated in the three-day outreach program.

In 1999, the CE department joined a similar outreach in Parañaque City.

HFHP is a non-profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry founded in 1988 and sponsored by Habitat for Humanity International. It is dedicated to building simple and decent homes for economically disadvantaged Filipinos through the participative labor of beneficiary families and local and foreign volunteers.
