Milanao is located high on the mountain of Batangas,
a region with terrain so difficult it is nearly impossible
to access without a four-wheel-drive truck – especially
during the rainy season because of the slippery slopes.
Villagers earn a meager income growing livestock and
planting crops that grow in the high mountain regions of
the Phillipines. A few families sell wood and charcoal – both
valued commodities. Renting motorcycles is expensive, so
they typically transport their products by foot to the lowland
and make the long return walking up the slippery hillside.
Communication presents challenges because cell phone
signals are unreliable or non-existent, so they often travel to
the next village to make calls or send text messages.
Most students walk from their homes to the school. There is
not enough water in school, so they carry containers from
their homes. The water they drink is from the river. With an
AquaTower from Planet Water and Xylem Watermark,
their supply of clean, filtered water will be dependable; a
rare situation for these families.

“My 2-year-old sister always has a tummy ache
because of the drinking water. Some grown-ups say
that the water from the river is good for drinking.
However, my guess is it gets contaminated when we
carry it to our home.”
