We believe in the power of Youths.
Project Cheway was awarded the very first Maybank Power Up Award, which recognises the most outstanding eMpowering Youths project for the year.
The team of Chemical Engineering students from National University of Singapore used their skills to set up a system to collect rainwater for household use and urban farming, so the families can save on buying water. They also helped to plant mangrove trees, as BASECO is located near the coastline and prone to flooding.
"We saw a kid collecting water from a (ruptured) pipe. It really highlighted the importance of water to them, where they had to scrimp and save on every drop." - Tan Zhan Peng, Team Leader
