The National Water Resources Board (NWRB) conducted an Information, Education and Communication (IEC) campaign with the theme “Water Education Program for Youth 2019” held in three (3) different public elementary schools. 

Embarking on a water education drive targeting the youth, its primary objective is to start teaching young children on the importance of water and how this precious natural resource can be conserved. NWRB recognizes that the habit of water conservation should be introduced at a young age. As vulnerable as they may be, children are also the most eager, open to learning individuals who play important role in relaying information from school, to household, and to the community.
Among the topics discussed were: Story of Water: A Valuable Resource, The Water Cycle, and Tips on Water Conservation by NWRB; “How to be a Water Warrior?” by Maynilad Water Services Inc. (MWSI); and Toka-Toka: Water Hygiene by Manila Water Company, Incorporated (MWCI).

The first water education campaign was conducted last September 4, 2019, in which eighty (80) students and teachers from Bungad Elementary School were present. On September 20, 2019, the second campaign was held in Cubao Elementary School and was attended by seventy-eighty (78) students and teachers. The third campaign was conducted on October 7, 2019 in Buhay na Tubig Elementary School in Cavite, with two hundred (200) students participating the event.

The third leg of the campaign coincided with the celebration of Global Handwashing Day, an annual global advocacy day dedicated to increase awareness and understand the importance of handwashing with soap as an easy, effective, and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.

The implementation of the said NWRB IEC campaign was made possible through the support of the Philippine Water Partnership (PWP), MWSI, MWCI and in coordination with the school principals: Ms. Josephine S. Arañas of Bungad Elementary School; Ms. Thelma D. Co of Cubao Elementary School and Dr. Divina A. Narvaez of Buhay na Tubig Elementary School, Cavite.
The NWRB IEC campaign was headed by Ms. Heleena Claire P. Espina along with her team from the NWRB Water Resources Information Section (WRIS), namely, Mr. Rowell M. Ynzon, Ms. Alpha B. Areniego and Ms. Josephine A. Abellana.
