AS WATER is a vital element of life and an essential component for a healthy and productive community, initiatives are being undertaken by the Research and Extension Office of Central Philippines State University in Kabankalan City to let this basic need be enjoyed by the people concerned.

Seeing this predicament being experienced by the households in So. Lucay, Barangay Camingawan, Kabankalan City, the said office conducted a training workshop on designing and installation of the community-based solar-powered water system for drinking and household use last February 8, 2021.

Dr. Aladino Moraca, CPSU president, who had already initiated various activities of installing solar panels to destitute farmers in the community, said extending assistance to underprivileged households is one way for the university to show its care and concern to the community
as one of its stakeholders.

The households expressed sincere gratefulness to the institution for answering their long-standing problem of potable water supply in the community. They likewise stated that being stakeholders of the institution, they are willing to support whatever programs and projects of the University towards the achievement of its goals.

Present during the activity were VP for Research and Extension Dr. Mae Flor Posadas, VP for Academic Affairs Dr. Fernando Abello, Research Director Dr. Angelie Rose Lumba, Director for Communication and Information Dr. Flora Carpio, Dean of the Graduate School Dr. Mary Ann Dagunan, and Gender and Development Coordinator Noel Dayono, among others.
