To help iskolar ng bayan through “the new normal” by providing for their remote learning needs, the UP Open University (UPOU) launched its own UPOU-Kaagapay+ program on September 1, in consonance with the UP System’s Kaagapay sa Pag-aaral ng mga Iskolar ng Bayan Fundraising and Resource Generation Campaign (Kaagapay UP).
