Project AQUARIA wins Coca-Cola Barkada Water Stewardship Award at 14th TAYO

PROJECT AQUARIA by the Cebu Institute of Technology’s (CIT) Industrial Engineering Council received the Coke Barkada Water Stewardship Award during the 14th Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards.

Project AQUARIA, which stands for Abiding Quality Aquatic Responsibility, has developed a mobile game application that educates the youth on the value of water, conservation, and proper hygiene. The project also engages children through a series of activities like Water Warrior Caravan; health, sanitation and hygiene workshops; read-along sessions; and youth forum.

This integrated coastal resource rehabilitation project, a joint initiative of the Pag-asa Youth Association of the Philippines-Talisay City Chapter and the Industrial Engineering Council of CIT, has a four-pronged approach – research, community development, youth empowerment, awareness and coral reef rehabilitation.

Erlyn Ivy Rago, a student from CIT, said the project was developed when the Metro Cebu Water District declared a state of calamity due to water shortage. “This initiative was designed to create mass awareness to spread the message of water conservation,” she said in Filipino. The project was launched last November.

Rago said the council reaches far-flung areas. “We cannot even estimate how many kids have tapped our smartphones to play the app. We let kids use our devices so they would know how the game is played,” she added.

Developed by one industrial engineering, two information technology and computer science students from CIT, the mobile app runs on an Android device. “They can reach us through Facebook if they want us to send them the downloadable link for free,” noted Roa, adding AQUARIA now has an improved version.

 “We aim to publish and distribute our game app, enabling Android-compatible phone users to easily download it. The cash prize will be used for it,” she said. “If possible, we want it free of charge… That’s our goal. We have no plans to commercialize it. If it is upgradable to premium and they want to avail it, they may pay a small amount.” 

TAYO winners this year also include Food Rescue Asean, Modern Nanays of Mindanao, Team Dugong Bughaw, UP Industrial Engineering Club, Go2Virtualahan Inc., HiGi Energy, Guiguinto Scholars’ Association, Ingat Kapandayan Artist Center, Voice of Cameleon’s Children, and Youth for a Livable Cebu. Winning organizations received cash prize and a trophy sculpted by Toym de Leon Imao.

Organizations are judged based on their project’s impact to stakeholders, means of harnessing the spirit of volunteerism, creativity and innovation, sustainability, and effective use of resources.

The projects fall under the following categories: education and technology, health, nutrition and well-being; environment, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation; livelihood and entrepreneur; and culture and the arts, peace and human development. 

Cecile Alcantara, Coca-Cola Philippines Foundation president, said the winning organization shares the company’s thrust for responsible and sustainable use of water resources.

 “Coca-Cola Foundation brings life-changing interventions to young people, their families and their communities. Our partnership with the TAYO Awards through the years has transformed the perspective on the youth. On being beneficiaries of our projects, we now count on them to be indispensable partners in the journey to sustainable development,” Alcantara said.

Citing McCann Worldgroup’s recent study, Truth About Youth, she said for the youth, belonging to a barkada remains key to establishing one’s self in finding happiness. She added the finalists are ahead as they have their values figured out and their respective barkadas have worked toward shared ideals.

 “Amidst all the noise and confusion, stay focused and constantly check your motives before you click, before you speak, and before you act. Every word and action that you make will affect at least one other person so be a positive influence always,” Alcantara said.
