Help light a Mangyan home!!
In partnership with Liter of Light, we will be conducting a Lamp Building Workshop at the Malasimbo Festival.
Liter of Light is a global, grassroots movement committed to providing affordable, sustainable solar light to people with limited or no access to electricity. Through a network of partnerships around the world, Liter of Light volunteers teach marginalized communities how to use recycled plastic bottles and locally sourced materials to illuminate their homes, businesses and streets. Liter of Light has installed more than 350,000 bottle lights in more than 15 countries and taught green skills to empower grassroots entrepreneurs at every stop. Liter of Light’s open source technology has been recognized by the UN and adopted for use in some UNHCR camps.
The Lamp Kits, priced at PhP1,000, can be reserved online and assembled during the Malasimbo Workshops on March 11, 2017, 3:30 PM, at the Mangyan Village, just within the festival grounds.
These lamps will be then distributed to Mangyan families who lack power source to light their homes. The distribution will be facilitated by the D’Aboville Foundation.
Here’s a sample video to give you an idea:
