Birth of the Makiling Goddesses

Last August 1 2009, the slopes of Mt. Makiling gave birth to a new milestone in the long struggle for gender equality in the Philippines. UP Babaylan - Los Banos was established.

50 brave individuals from the University of the Philippines - Los Banos came together and went through an orientation, intensive training and a series of modules from Babaylanes, the alumni network of UP Babaylan, and composed the Founding Members and Officers of UP Babaylan - Los Banos.

After the Induction of the Founding officers, the members of UP Babaylan - Los Banos, UP Babaylan, and Babaylanes Inc., celebrated the night away in a true blue Babaylan tradition of free flowing drinks, sumptuous buffet feast and pool party.
