Gender and Development Office celebrates 1Billion Rising 2021


ISAT U calls on everyone to RISE in honor and celebration of our women workers, and to create and grow RISING GARDENS.

The Gender and Development Office celebrated the 1Billion Rising 2021 with several activities conducted. A webinar on Gender and Coping in Today’s New Normal and Karapatan Mo, Alamin Mo was conducted last February 23, 2021.

Students also participated in the 1Billion Rising 2021: Rising Gardens Photo Essay Contest which show-off their visual story-telling skills.

Rising Gardens are a defiant creative call for revival, restoration and transformation. They are, in many ways, a compassionate call for justice because one of the greatest injustices of our time has been the destruction and eradication of Mother Earth, parallel to the ongoing and escalating gender-based violence. This is our simple yet unique way of showing our local communities and the world that we care about our environment as well as we condemn all sort of gender-based violence.
