(Message from Village Representatives and Socialization of Healthy Community Movement)
Community service activities are routinely carried out because it has fundamental meaning for the academic community to apply the knowledge gained directly to the community and is also one of the Tridharma of higher education. Pasanggrahan Village was chosen as a location for community service because the distance is not too far from Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia, this is related to the continued program of community service, namely the Village of Development.

At a glance about Pasanggrahan Village, this village is quite advanced. The main road in the village is smooth with asphalt. The average citizen also uses motorized vehicles for mobilization in their daily activities. But the activities of residents in Pasanggrahan Village on the first day were not very visible. The most constraint is the unstable internet connection at the location of the inn. Then, the availability of water around the village houses is also very limited, even though Pasanggrahan Village is a water tourism area of the Masigit Curug and Cimincul Bathing Ponds.
(Atmosphere of Teaching and Learning Activities)
Lots of activities carried out in this community service, such as educational seminars for teachers with the theme “fun learning using the media”, teaching and learning activities in Madrasah Diniyah Al-Maksud, SD Pasanggrahan 1, 2, MI and MTs Nurul Huda, spiritual competition, smart quiz, building MCK facilities, as well as health counseling, public parties, and bazaars.
