(ALKFI), the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) and Honda Foundation Inc., a new linear park will be constructed in Barangay 832 near P. Quirino Bridge in Manila. This is in support of the Adopt-an-Estero project to further rehabilitate Estero de Pandacan.
Honda Foundation will fund the construction of the linear park and the solid waste management campaign. The latter will be implemented by ALKFI-Bantay Kalikasan under its Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig project and the PRRC. The two organizations will also be responsible for the construction and maintenance of the linear park.
“The work we have been doing with the PRRC, Honda Foundation and all partners really involves advocacy work,” said Bantay Kalikasan program director Jen Santos. “We are going to do house-to-house solid waste management advocacy programs and we have information, education and communication materials.” (Story/Photos by: Althea Cahayag)
