Cebu engineering students win Coca-Cola water stewardship award

A group of industrial engineering students from Cebu is making water conservation, sanitation, and education easier for ordinary folks and the younger generation.

Their Project AQUARIA, which stands for Abiding Quality Aquatic Responsibility through Innovation and Awareness, engages the public, particularly the children, through a series of activities – Water Warrior Caravan; health, sanitation, and hygiene workshops; read-along sessions; and youth forums.

The group has also developed an app that educates young Filipinos on the value of water, conservation, and proper hygiene.

The Industrial Engineering Council of the Cebu Institute of Technology is one of the 20 youth organizations shortlisted in the 14th Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards. They are also this year’s Coca-Cola Barkada Water Stewardship Awardee.

The annual search for exemplary youth organizations that strive to contribute to nation building in their own ways is now on its 14th year and is supported by the National Youth Commission, the TAYO Foundation, the offices of Senators Bam Aquino and Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, and Coca-Cola.
