Laguna Water's advocacy program, Tamang Sanitasyon Equals Kalusugan, Kalinisan, at Kaunlaran ng Bayan (TSEK ng Bayan), won a Gold Anvil Award at the recently concluded 54th Anvil Gabi ng Parangal held at the Marriott Grand Ballroom, Pasay City.

TSEK ng Bayan was recognized for successfully bringing proper sanitation information to half a million people through an effected multi-faceted strategy and strategic partnerships.

The TSEK ng Bayan program aims to bridge the gap between the knowledge and practice of proper sanitation in the Province of Laguna, through awareness programs and activities about used water management and the dangers posed by untreated used water to health, environment, and economy.

In 2018, the TSEK ng Bayan advocacy has reached more than 500,000 people though its barangay caravans, flyers, and social media campaigns, among others. Various local government units and agencies namely: municipalities of Pangil and Lumban, Department of the Interior and Local Government, and the Provincial Health Office of Laguna, have also joined the TSEK ng Bayan movement for proper sanitation. Further, the TSEK ng Bayan program has been influential to the success of the implementation of Laguna Water’s desludging services.

“The simple practice of desludging makes a big impact to our society, particularly to the sustainability of our environment. If we want to provide a better life to the future generations, we should start now and start at home,” said General Manager Shoebe Hazel Caong.

In compliance with the Philippine Clean Water Act and the Supreme Court continuing mandamus to clean up Manila Bay, Laguna Water’s TSEK ng Bayan encourages households in Laguna to practice regular desludging of septic tanks to ensure treatment of untreated used water, which is one of the largest polluter of water bodies.

The Anvil Awards, organized by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines, is dubbed as the Oscars of Philippine public relations, recognizing the best and brightest public relations tools and programs in the country.
