A non-governmental organization recently showed the Boholano leadership about the prospect of having solar lamps to light up parts of the province that remains in the dark.
Ylac Diaz, executive director of the Liter of Light Foundation presented his group’s idea on solar lamps during a meeting last Wednesday at the People’s Mansion.
Diaz said school children, in selected schools, will be taught how to make solar lamps in line with the “Clean Energy for the Future” project.
The aim of the project is to get wider attention on the importance of renewable energy. At the same time, help the youth to gain valuable skills that may also help the community as well.
Liter of Light is a foundation that believes in green technology is for everybody. However, only a privileged few are able to affort it.
The foundation has been in the forefront of finding sustainable building solutions and bring it to the grassroots levels–those who are in need of low-cost infrastructure.
Ideas being presented by the NGO are easily replicable, scalable and of course, made from materials sourced from local communities.
Liter of Light has installed more than 350,000 bottle lights in more than 15 countries.
Liter of Light’s open source technology has been recognized by the UN and adopted for use in some UNHCR camps.
