Agos Ram Pump


Installing over 100 ram pumps to the country's remote areas to provide accessible, safe water to these communities

Earth Day Network Philippines, Inc. (EDNPI) in partnership with Coca- Cola Foundation, Inc. (CCFI) and Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation, Inc. (AIDFI) launched the Agos Ram Pump Project Philippines last October 2011. It is a nationwide environmental program to install one hundred (100) ram pumps by 2013. The partnership endeavors to provide upland communities with accessible and reliable community water systems using the hydraulic ram pumps.


The project aims to raise the awareness of upland communities on the importance of water and help them conserve and preserve this precious resource. The installations will be carried out by AIDFI, which has been recognized for its hydraulic technology by different organizations the recent one was the 2012 Ramon Magsaysay Award. This is also CCF's contribution to environmental protection and conservation particularly in the area of water management.


EDNPI serves as the Project Manager tasked with identifying and screening the prospective communities; helping the communities build their capacity to manage the water system; and, assisting them in installing their community-based ecological waste management system as well as other livelihood projects such as organic farming and upcycling waste materials.
