SAGIP means to save, or to rescue, in Filipino. Saving people in disaster situations need not be grand, only efficient. AIC’s innovations are designed not only to help people in real-time disaster situations, but also empowers people and communities to find ways to save themselves through these accessible and affordable makeshift technologies
Innovative technology that is practical and mindful of context-specific concerns is needed for disaster resiliency. When resources are meager and the situation is far from ideal, makeshift interventions through innovative technology are lifesaving. The Ateneo Innovation Center’s (AIC) efforts are oriented towards this end. SAGIP walks you through how AIC’s technologies help bridge the gap between basic needs and the constraints brought about by disaster situations.
