My Story

Established in July 2018, A'TIN Philippines (formerly Aurum PH) is the pioneer fanbase of SB19 — the fastest-rising P-Pop boy group in the country.

To serve as a link that connects SB19 closer to their fans; support the group's projects; provide related content and updates; create activities that promote camaraderie within the fandom, and uphold the spirit of Bayanihan by reaching out to communities that are in need.

Become an effective instrument in promoting SB19 and Original Filipino Music (OPM) as a whole on a global scale.

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines is a non-profit organization which aims to conserve biodiversity in the country while promoting sustainable development. To commemorate SB19's 3rd anniversary, A'Tin Philippines is partnering with WWF Philippines in raising funds to support our environmental front liners and their communities. Just like what the lyrics of the SB19 song 'ikako' says, "Oh, sigurado, babangon tayo. Kaya'ng lahat, ikaw at ako'' (Oh, I'm sure, we will rise again. We can do anything, you and I), we believe that together as a fandom, we can make a difference by helping our modern-day heroes and their families survive during these challenging times.


Tuna Value-Adding in Lagonoy Gulf and Mindoro Strait

Lagonoy Gulf and Mindoro Strait are major fishing grounds for artisanal fishers. WWF-Philippines has been working on two handline yellowfin tuna Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) in these areas since 2011 and has a deep and strong relationship with the local fishing communities. These communities have been involved in many WWF efforts on sustainable fishing practices, from initiatives to prevent post-harvest losses, to social enterprise development, to important innovations in seafood traceability. They have been true partners for sustainable fisheries, and model communities for responsible fishing practices.

These FIPs are also part of the unit of assessment for Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, and are the first in the Philippines to enter such a process. While these communities have made significant strides towards sustainable fisheries, they are still struggling under the effects of extreme weather events, such as typhoons, as well as the disruption of their supply chains due to COVID-19.

In order to support these communities, WWF-Philippines has held a series of training on tuna value-adding and processing. 104 women in Lagonoy Gulf and 120 women in Mindoro Strait have participated in hands-on workshops to learn how to process tuna meat into products such as tuna longganisa, tuna burgers, and tuna nuggets. These trainings are meant to enable women to start their own small businesses and add value to the tuna caught in the area.

However, despite the training, the women have not been able to make use of their new skills because of a lack of equipment and resources to pursue these tuna processing activities. WWF-Philippines proposes the provision of 21 starter kits for each municipality involved in the FIPs (15 in Lagonoy Gulf and 6 in Mindoro Strait). Each starter kit will be comprised of the following items:

1. Utensils

2. Knives

3. Chopping board

4. Frying pan

5. Steamer

6. Measuring spoons & cups

7. Food processor

8. Tongs

9. Butane gas & stove

10. Grammer weighing scale

11. Mixing bowl

12. Aluminum trays

13. Colander

14. Sealer

15. Raw ingredients (e.g. vegetables, fish, seasonings)

Access to the starter kits and management of the Ice Retailing Enterprise will be handled and monitored by the respective Tuna Fishers Association in each area.
