We live our lives each day not knowing how many people strive to survive climate change and natural disasters around us.
I am Super is aimed to better equip the nation for disaster resilience and to help out young people and communities, who have been affected, who are being affected, and who will be affected by natural and man-made calamities.
We seek to sustain the livelihood of Typhoon Yolanda survivors, provide assistance to the evacuees of the Marawi siege and, ultimately, arm young people in the most vulnerable schools with emergency Go Bags and disaster preparedness knowledge.

You can be your own hero today.
