Sustainable Cities and Communities

In a bid to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable, DLSU-D works closely with members of the Lasallian community and external partners in efforts to advocate for disaster risk and reduction, sustainable livelihood, and the creation of programs targeted towards empowerment.

De La Salle University-Dasmariñas constantly engages in community extension efforts, through the Lasallian Community Development Center, implements proactive programs on livelihood, health, education, and relief in times of disasters.

To make an impact in the lives of youth at risk, DLSU-D built the Bahay Pag-asa as an alternative to crowded detention centers. The Bahay Pag-asa is a monastery type center where residents undergo Basic Education, Spiritual Formation and Values Education, Livelihood and Skills Training Program, and a Post Release Program that includes parent education, family counseling, home visits, job referrals and placement, scholarships, guardianship, hotline services, cooperative learning groups, legal assistance, peer support networking, entrepreneurial skills, and homecomings.
