Team BIGGKAS under the Center for Student Affairs Civics desk handed over batches of hydroponics gardens to mothers of Barangay San Joaquin, the beneficiaries of their winning project in the Unilab IdeasPositive competition.

UA&P students composing the team namely Albertine Din, Patricia Regalado, Grayson Gil Yanez, Jean Reyes, Salve Regina Capulong and Carmina Rivera, and coach Anna Alejo engaged the mothers by helping in their training for sustaining a hydroponics garden and assisting in making a viable business out of it.

Last March, the barangay  inaugurated the Donate-a-Plant and Hydroponics projects for Women’s Month. Gracing the event were Mrs. Maribel Eusebio, wife of the Pasig Mayor Robert Eusebio, Pasig City councilors, councilors from other Pasig City barangays, and the Barangay San Joaquin women who were the main beneficiaries and promoters of the projects.

Mrs. Eusebio offered the City Government’s help in terms of sustainability and other needed resources and network for this hydroponics project.

Through Unilab, Team BIGGKAS has been mentored by well-renowned social entrepreneurs and business consultants. Partnerships were established with the Department of Science and Technology for training on the planting method and the Bureau of Plant Industry for the donation of a variety of vegetable seeds. #
