SUGPAT’s new look


Every dream matters - that is the new SUGPAT tagline, as it focuses on capacitating youth into transformative peacebuilders and compassionate leaders who are equipped with life skills, driven to achieve their dreams and answer the call of their community. 

Along with the launch of the SUGPAT Adolescent Development and Participation Program, the new branding of SUGPAT was also presented. 

The new logo is composed of three elements: ellipsis in speech balloon, three human figures, and the color blue. 

The Ellipsis in Speech Balloon symbolizes thoughts, speech, idea, and voice. SUGPAT acknowledges the thoughts, values, and ideas of our youth, hence the symbol for speech and communication; valuing the youth’s voices and the contributions that they can do to our society. 

The Three Human Figures symbolizes humanity and “kasama.” SUGPAT is a place for humanity. The three human figures represent our three stakeholders: Out-of-School Youth (middle), Family (left, supporting from behind the youth), and the BLGU (right, an external support).

The color blue symbolizes the sky and the universe. SUGPAT believes the sky is not the limit, but the take-off point to a place of endless possibilities. No dream is ever out of reach here in SUGPAT.

With these elements, the SUGPAT logo is formed, showing the connection of the different stakeholders working hand in hand to highlight the importance of the youth in our society.
