Lighting Up a Village in Aklan Province

Monday, 26 May 2014

Thanks to Thomson Reuters for working with Liter of Light in lighting 50 new Gawad Kalinga (another social enterprise) homes and bringing solar street lights to the village last May 24 to 25. It was wonderful to see the incredible spirit of volunteerism of the Reuters Philippines team and community leaders helping in the installation of the solar lights.

Aklan is one of the places in the Visayas region hit by Typhoon Haiyan last year. The typhoon destroyed many of the power grids in the region and the government has not been able to fix the situation in many areas since.

From total darkness to light with the unlimited energy of the sun!
