About MyShelter Foundation
We believe green technology is for everyone. Unfortunately, it’s only accessible to those who can afford it.
That’s why the foundation is taking sustainable building solutions to the grassroots level—the people who are in most need of low-cost infrastructures.
These ideas are easily replicable, scalable, and of course, only use materials that are sourced from local communities.
Here are some of our projects in the Philippines:
Pier One Seafarers Dormitory
Design Against the Elements Competition
Bottle School Project
About Liter of Light
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.
Liter of Light is the proud recipient of the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize and a winner of the 2014-2015 World Habitat Award.
