Pasali Philippines Foundation, Inc. through it Appropriate Technology and Innovation Development unit has completed its project on Spring Development and Installation of Level II Water System through Hydraulic Ram Pump in eight (8) sites of Brgy. Tungao, Butuan City from May to August, 2014.
The project is among the community development initiatives of LGU-Butuan City under the program on SALINTUBIG-“Sagana at Ligtas na Tubig sa lahat, ngayon at sa susunod pang mga henerasyon”. The water system project is now functional and continues to benefit various communities of the said barangay which include Purok 22-A, TF.1; Purok 27-A Flat; Bangon Silang; Bangonbangon; Tud-ol; Kabalawbalawan; Landing; and San Roque.
The Pasali technical team is spearheaded by the key personnels who specialized on water system namely, Engr. Akmad Matabalao (Site Engineer), Mr. Marlon Guibel (Head Technician) and Marlon Jamil (Asst. Technician).
Furthermore, Pasali is also into engagement with the two (2) water system projects in Brgy. Lanawan, Mc Arthur, Leyte and Brgy. Mahayahay, San Luis, Agusan del Sur under the Coca-Cola AGOS Project and in partnership with AIDFI (Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation Inc.).
Amazed, Manobo children gathers around a tap stand to drink water from a newly installed water system in Biao, Palimbang Sultan Kudarat. Cold and fresh spring water is propelled up to the top of the mountain right where they are, through a smart technology developed by AID Foundation called Ram pump. For the first time, they have access to water without the long and breakneck journey. No need for children and women to walk half to an hour just to get water. “ Dati, wala’y ligo-ligo ang mga bata, karon kabalo ka, tatlo na ka beses sila nagaligo”( before children can hardly take a bath, now children bathe three times a day, says a project staff.
The indigenous people community, located 450 meter above sea level and 16 kilometers from the highway receives water system through the lobby efforts of the Pasali technical group to the local government unit and to the Department of Health. The community is reached out after a Cholera outbreak back in 2010 that killed mostly children. Now, 60 families have potable water nearby and construction of one more water system is ongoing in Poblacion (center) of Palimbang by the Tekboys composed of trained tri-people youth.
Another Ram Pump is being installed by the Pasali technical group in Brgy. Limulan Sitio Minurok, Kalamansig Sultan Kudarat under the agos RAM Pump Project of AID foundation, Earth Day Network, funded by Coca- Cola. Three Manobo (an indigenous group ) villages with a total of 100 households located more than 500 meters above the sea level will have free flowing potable water. They are the third recipient community of the project in Mindanao. A village leader Neneng Tinay excitedly expressed, “ I can’t believe that there’s water here now on top of the mountain”. Three Pasali techboys are the front liners in this installation. Since the project started, they’ve been training 2 community technicians who will oversee the pump after the turnover this July 13,2012. more pictures
