BERDENG HAMON: SINOP BULASI
The “Ang Hamon ng Bagong Henerasyon: Halina’t mag Bulasi” project is a segregation and recycling project for all public primary and secondary schools in District 1, Quezon City. The project aims to impart the values of environmental stewardship among the youth by initiating a school-based segregation and recycling program.
The project is open to students, faculty and so with the other members of the school community wherein they will be earning points for every kilo and/or piece of recyclables that will be brought to school. These recyclables are bought by the partner junkshops and each participant will be given their respective passbooks which contain their earned points. The participants may use their earned points in exchange of school supplies, grocery items, personal hygiene stuff, sporting goods, gadgets, etc. which may be found in the BH cart.
A special incentive (allowance for ten (10) months; June to March of the following school year) will be given to one (1) student per school who have earned the highest points (not lower than 1500 pts).
The AHBH:HB project will eventually cross the borders of District 1, QC by school year 2011-2012.
Bantay Hangin Program-Kontra Usok / Kontra TB
The Kontra Usok / Kontra TB campaign seminar and caravan / motorcade, is in support of the Clean Air Advocacy. This Bantay Hangin Program is in connection with the celebration of the Lung Protection Month on August and Environment Month on November. The program is a citywide massive information and education drive to enhance awareness of Quezon City residents about the negative effects of air pollution and the actions we must take to resolve this problem.
The Bagong Henerasyon supported the Save the La Mesa Watershed Program of ABS-CBN Foundation since 2007. Bagong Henerasyon encouraged and partnered with several organizations such as the Rotary Club of South Triangle and the Cradle of Joy Learning Center in order to raise funds and make contributions in saving the water source of Metro Manila and the nearby provinces.
Currently, the Bagong Henerasyon is establishing partneships and joining talks and activities, this time in saving the PASIG RIVER. This is aside from the yearly tree planting activities undertaken by the Bagong Henerasyon, its officers, volunteers and members.
The Bagong Henerasyon established water tanks and drinking fountains in several schools in Quezon City. This is to augment the need of the students and faculty members for clean and potable water supply in their respective schools.
Bagong Henerasyon also provided communities with safe drinking water in partnership with water concessionaire, MAYNILAD as well as establishing deep wells in parts of Quezon City where clean drinking water is not yet available.
