Water is the lifeblood of communities. Through our Agos Program, we partner with NGOs to install sustainable systems that bring water to remote islands and mountain villages. Our watershed conservation efforts, meanwhile, help ensure that water continues to flow for future generations.
Hope is part of the human nature. There is something within us that wants to reach out for the future, towards somewhere we do not know yet. We keep on hoping for things to happen even if we do not know if it will truly happen, because humans believe that if it is fulfilled then they will be contented.
Our support for the youth begins in the classroom. We help ensure a safe and conducive learning environment by building classrooms in underserved public schools and providing vocational training tools and equipment to public senior high schools to help ensure livelihood opportunities for the students when they graduate. We also believe that experiential learning is crucial to building character and good citizenship. As co-presenter of the TAYO Awards, we encourage young people to work together for positive change in their communities.
"Before, getting water was a daily stuggle for us. But thanks to the pumps installed here, now there is water whenever we need it," say A'idah Hamman, a resident of the Sountered Mindanao municipality of Upi.
Safe drinking water is an urgent necessity during times of calamity. We provide bottled drinking water to serve the immediate needs in disaster-affected areas. For efficient distribution, we partner with the nationwide network of Coca-Cola facilities and volunteer associates, as well as government and non-government institutions. We also deploy a potable water plant that can produce as much as 3,000 liters per hour.
