In partnership with Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), we provide safe and easy access to clean potable water, to help improve health and sanitation and to uplift living conditions and quality of life in waterless communities. With easy access to safe potable water, benefited communities can have all the water they need for household needs, drinking and personal care. Time previously spent for fetching water from distant unsafe sources is also now more efficiently used for more important family concerns and ensures the safety of young children who are often tasked to do the fetching of water.
Full scholarships covering tuition, miscellaneous school fees, food and transportation expenses are awarded to deserving but financially-challenged pharmacy students enrolled in member schools of the Philippine Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (PACOP).
