Every Dream Matters

SUGPAT is a local term which generally means to connect, merge, and bring together, and is understood by the different ethno-linguistic groups present in the Zamboanga Peninsula. We seek to connect the out-of-school youth of Zamboanga to opportunities that will help them achieve their dreams.


The SUGPAT believes in the importance of creating better experiences and opportunities for out-of-school youth during their “second decade of life” - a crucial period of opportunity, growth, exploration, and creativity and at the same time a period of greater risks and vulnerabilities.

The program, established in 2015, saw the emerging need for programs to address the concern of the growing number of out-of-school youth in Zamboanga City.  Through the initiative of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University Center for Culture and the Arts, in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and ING, the SUGPAT Program was born.
