About AGHAM

“Man can find meaning in life, short and perilous as it is, only through devoting himself to society.” – Albert Einstein

AGHAM-Advocates of Science and Technology for the People is an organization of patriotic, pro-people scientists, engineers and S&T advocates, bonded together by a common goal of promoting science and technology that genuinely serve the interest of the Filipino people. We do this by rendering direct technical support services to marginalized communities and through conducting science-informed advocacy campaigns to better the welfare of the people.

AGHAM was established on July 24, 1999.

Science and Technology for the People

AGHAM encourages STEM workers to work with local communities, learn from each other and together, in the process, make science and technology serve the people.

Brief history

AGHAM founding member Engr. Mon Ramirez, who passed away on August 28, 2021, wrote a short photo history of AGHAM for the 12th anniversary celebration in 2011. You can read it here.

You can also read about our tribute to Monram, as many friends fondly call him, here.

Prometheus Bound: The State of Science and Technology in the Philippines

AGHAM made this short documentary about the state of science and technology in the Philippines. This was made in 2005, but sadly its analysis still resonates 16 years later.
