Students of the MDRR program continue to learn more about community-based resilience and disaster risk reduction through field exposure trips to Buklod Tao in San Mateo, Rizal. One of the activities implemented through the field exposure trips was the training and demonstration of solar-powered clean water systems together with the Ateneo Innovation Center (AIC). Additionally, Mr. Abinales took part in establishing the KASALI-KA (Kamalayan Sa Lindol at Kahandaan) project.
The Ateneo Innovation Center has also supported the BTKI through an installation and demonstration for a water filtration system in the community.
