The University of the Philippines Alumni Association of Australia – NSW Chapter (UPAAA-NSW) joins hands with Oh Boo Chocolates in supporting two academically deserving but indigent UP students. 

UPAAA-NSW is one of the oldest UP alumni chapters officially recognised outside the Philippines and one of the pioneer Filipino organisations in NSW.  Since 2008, the association’s Scholarship Grant Project has already produced 10 scholars from campuses in Manila, Mindanao, Baguio, Diliman, Visayas, and Los Baños. UPAAA-NSW’s recent scholars, Mikaela Bonador and Joy Loresca, graduated magna cum laude and cum laude respectively from UP Diliman with a degree in BS Elementary Education.

Oh Boo Chocolates is owned by Alex Chan and his sister, Fanny Chan, who is a Belgium-trained maître chocolatier. The gourmet chocolate shop is in Barangaroo, the new world class, waterfront destination in Sydney CBD known for its exceptionally designed buildings, landscape, and public space.
