CHED launches Taga-ilog in support of Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) launched Taga-ilog in support of Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig recently at Studio 10 of ABS-CBN.

Taga-ilog’s aim is to revive the people’s connection with the river in order to revive the Pasig River. Filipino ancestors used to live along the river banks and regarded the river as their life. Without the revival of that deep appreciation of the river, the Pasig River will remain a dumping site.

Taga-ilog is composed of all Metro Manila Colleges and Universities. They committed to include the Pasig River in their environmental, cultural-historical curriculum. Likewise, they also committed to implement solid waste management in their respective campuses, monitor and report incidents that pollute the river, initiate and support all activities conducted for the benefit of the river such as the Piso Para Sa Ilog Pasig Campaign and the Philippine International Marathon: A Run for the Pasig River among others.

ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc. Managing Director, Ms. Gina Lopez, declared that the youth is a powerful force in making projects succeed. She experienced it in Save the La Mesa Watershed Project wherein out of 5 million signatures gathered, 3 million came from the youth to save the source of water for 12 million Filipinos.

CHED Chairman Emmanuel Y. Angeles, Ph.D expressed that he shares the vision of passion of ABS-CBN Foundation for environmental restoration and conservation. With the launching of Task Force Taga-ilog, the academes and the youth that compose them made a statement that they want the Pasig River clean.
