- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

Your Story about Tumalutab, Zamboanga City
You story about Tumalutab
Story by Mrs. Carosama Abunawas,
BRECDA Chairperson of Barangay Tumalutab, Zamboanga City
Most people are not aware how difficult it is for us Muslim women to take on leadership responsibilities in our communities. Most of the time, the women lack confidence, are afraid, or are just too busy taking take of their family and households.
This situation of women in our culture did not deter me, though – I really wanted development, not only for my family and myself, but also for my community.
When the USAID-funded Alliance for Mindanao Off-grid Renewable Energy (AMORE) Program came to our Barangay Tumalutab, I was elected chairperson of the Barangay Renewable Energy and Community Development Association (BRECDA) that will be composed of the household beneficiaries in our community. Since the time I was elected, I have been attending trainings and seminars conducted by AMORE in our community and in Zamboanga City proper.
I took up the challenge of leading our BRECDA because the other members are more concerned with their economic activities. The men think that attending seminars and trainings takes them away from their fishing and farming activities. The women, as I’ve said, are really just passive.
At first, a lot of people in my community thought I was stupid. But now, they have seen the lights… which are brighter than the kerosene wick lamps we were using before.
The AMORE-installed lights, my neighbors say, are like the ones we see in the city. I can switch them on anytime I want. Those who have small children are also happy because they can switch on the light when the baby wakes up in the middle of the night.
I realize now that it is really not easy to lead our BRECDA but I am giving my best effort, together with the rest of our officers. We impose strict measures to those who are late or do not attend our BRECDA meetings without good and valid reasons. I tell them that this is for us. This is the first time a development program such as this came to our remote village.
I tell them we are only given once-in-a-lifetime opportunities in life, sometimes there are even none, especially in the communities where AMORE now operates.
We are now looking forward to a better life, not just for us, but also for our children. We were longing for a positive change in our community, and AMORE came. We want to make this work, and we will make this work. AMORE has lighted up our lives, in more ways than one, and we will work hard to keep the light shining.
