The Fraternal Order of Utopia would like to congratulate Brod John Michael San Pedro Villanueva (2B) for being part of the team that was crowned the champions in the recently-concluded CHR Cup – a human rights-themed debate tournament held last Sept 6, 2014, at the CHR Compound in Diliman Q.C. The Beneficiality Speaker of Team 2Beat, Villanueva was joined by Liane Candelario and Angelique Pearl Simbulan (hailed as both the tournament and the finals Best Speaker), as they beat Team Colysseum in the finals. The match was judged by several prominent lawyers from the CHR, as well as the former ambassador of Chile, Roberto Mayorga.

Utopia Bar Sendoffs

After grueling months of intense study, our Utopian barristers look firmly towards conquering the approaching bar exam with full hearts, clear eyes, and Utopian resolve.

The Sendoffs aimed to recognize our hardworking barristers and show them that the whole community is behind them each and every step of the way. This event was not only attended by the Utopian residents and the barristers themselves, but was also graced by the presence of the alumni members, as they all showed their unwavering faith and full support to the recent law graduates.

UTOPIA VILLAGE: Service through Social Responsibility

The year 2007 gave a new light to the people of Marcelo Green Village in Parañaque, when our Utopian brothers initiated a tie-up with Gawad Kalinga for the construction of the Utopia Village. Spearheading the project was (Brod/Boss) Antonio “Tony” Bernardo, who was already involved in other Gawad Kalinga housing initiatives since 2004 which, at first, started only as part of the roster of social responsibility projects of the Bureau of Customs, where he acted as its former Commissioner. In a recent interview with the Philippine Star, Bernardo said, “I got into GK by accident and I’ll be staying doing GK work by choice. Once you’ve been bitten by GK, you stay there. My philosophy has always been, to whom much is given, much is required. My dream is to see and make the communities the very best they can be. Everyone has a right to a decent home.” The village is composed of around 50 houses and is part of the much larger Gawad Kalinga Village in Parañaque, which shall shelter read more++
