Christmas is for children so what do you think is the best gift we can give them?

I can’t remember the last time I visited an orphanage although I’ve been planning, it always didn’t materialize so when I received an invitation to grace the turnover of the Tiger Energy Playground to Hospicio de San Jose, one of the many orphanage in the country, I didn’t think twice.
It was a rainy day of December 15, after an early event in Mall of Asia me and two other bloggers brave the bad weather and took the LRT and stayed almost an hour inside the cab due to heavy traffic just to attend the turnover. Good thing, we came on time. On our arrival, it was the old building that I noticed second to the children who are praying the rosary lead by nuns.

I knew it will be a fun-filled day for the kids of Hospicio de San Jose, they were excited with the new playground. We were praying the rain would stop so we can start the program. Few minutes more, everybody was there including the event host, KRAFT representatives and students from Mapua Institute of Technology.

So, what’s this playground all about? This is a special playground presented to Hospicio de San Jose by Tiger Energy Biscuit.

Why special? because the energy that the children spend to play can now be turned into energy for the orphanage through the Tiger Energy playground. How it works? Kids release energy on the playground and the generator inside the seesaw and merry-go-round stores this energy turning it to electrical energy that will be stored in a battery.
Initial tests have shown that the Tiger Energy Playground can store up to 36 hours worth of power for every 24 hours of play.

On December 15, Tiger Energy Brand of Kraft Foods (Philippines) presented the Tiger Energy Playground to the children of Hospicio de San Jose.

We witness the first playground in the country that turn transforms kids’ physical energy into free electric energy.

Called the Tiger Energy Playground, it includes two popular types of park equipment, a seesaw and a merry-go-round  but with added features. The Tiger Energy Biscuit brand of Kraft Foods (Philippines) Inc., teamed up with the Mapua Institute of Technology to make the equipment convert the energy created by kids while playing into electrical energy that can be used in the Hospicio compound. In short, every bit of energy that kids exert can be turned by the equipment into electricity to light lamp posts and other appliances.

Physical Energy creates Electrical Energy

The team from Mapua is made up of Electrical Engineering thesis advisers Engr. Michael Pacis, Engr. Conrad Ostia, Engr. Ronald Santiago and Engr. Mark Christian Manuel; and students John Ray Abad, Merryll Capucao, Lynette Dane Legaspi, Jovan Barrago, Jeffrey Adams Uy, Daniel Oliver Calapatia and Dave Bautista.

Tiger Energy Biscuit is the delicious and nutritious biscuit made of wheat and milk and has the 9 vitamins and 6 minerals of Enermaxx. This unique combination helps give your child the energy he needs for the entire day. The concept of the Tiger Energy Playground merges the benefits kids get from the brand, with the ability to convert into a commodity that can benefit a community.

Kraft Foods Category Marketing Manager for Biscuits, Carlo Licuanan said, We chose to donate the Tiger Energy Playground to Hospicio de San Jose to remind the children here that they have not been forgotten this Christmas, and that there is reason for them to be hopeful for a bright future. Hopefully soon, the Playground will also be able to help Hospicio in its operations, by helping provide part of its power consumption so that their monthly electricity bill can be reduced.”

Though still in the early stages of implementation, the Tiger Energy Park is already seen by all participating institutions as a positive way forward, not only for Hospicio de San Jose, but for the development of Philippine-made devices to help provide electricity to less fortunate communities around the county.
