UPLiFT partnered with Water and Life Philippines (W&L) through a MOA signed last October 30, 2019 at the W&L office in Bacoor, Cavite.


Signatories to the agreement were, from Left to Right, Lea Musso (W&L Project Officer), Alexia Michels (W&L Country Director), Edmon Sison (UPLiFT Exec. Director) and Flor Cachola (UPLiFT CBDS Manager). This partnership aims improve the living conditions of urban poor communities in the Cavite area through effective implementation of a Solid Waste Management Services program which includes community awareness seminars, street clean-ups, proper waste management, and the construction of waste transfer stations. The estimated target beneficiaries for this project are about 10,000 individuals and a community in Pugad Ibon, Kawit, Cavite was identified as the pilot area of implementation.


To help finance the project, UPLiFT turned over a check donation amounting to Php 1 million to W&L last November 8, 2019 at its Head Office in Binondo, Manila. Leading the turnover were Mico Sano (UPLiFT Operations Manager – SOUTH) and Lea Sacay (W&L Representative), together with Tita Babes Estrada (UPLiFT BOT Member).
