Tubig Pag-Asa (TPA) is a social enterprise created in 2009. Its name comes from the Tagalog language which means "water of hope". It improves access to water in the slums of the Philippines in 7 cities, in the suburbs of Manila and on the islands of Cebu and Leyte. The water operators, due to lack of financial means, human resources and also of competence, do not want to work in these areas where they face a high rate of piracy and on average 45% of bill recovery.
Tubig Pag-Asa (TPA) decided to take up the challenge of guaranteeing access to water to these populations, proposing a model that combines adaptation to the needs of the beneficiaries and technology (software management and app).
The United Nations declared in 2010 that access to water is a right, yet today 27% of the world's population does not have access to water, especially in remote rural areas and urban slums. TPA decided to take up the challenge in urban area in the Philippines by signing Memorandum of Understanding (...

The United Nations declared in 2010 that access to water is a right, yet today 27% of the world's population does not have access to water, especially in remote rural areas and urban slums. TPA decided to take up the challenge in urban area in the Philippines by signing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with cities and local water operators to build its own water networks in the slums of the Philippines. The urban communities, 50% of which are young people under 30 y/o and women, receive quality water service directly to their homes at a fair price. To limit fraud and piracy, TPA has set up micropayments, a local service and daily billing and cluster of meters in public places. In order to guarantee a water price that represents a maximum of 5% of the household income and the profitability of the model over 15 years, TPA had the idea of inventing a software and an application, called Wamasys, that allows them to manage the networks more quickly and efficiently. In12 years of existence, TPA has delivered water to 19 precarious neighbourhoods in 7 cities in the Philippines, giving 40,000 people access to water every day.
