The Liter of Light project is an initiative that empowers social entrepreneurs to provide low-cost solar energy to poor communities in the developing world. Established in the Philippines with one carpenter in one town, the project has now expanded to light up 200,000 homes all over the world (www.aliteroflight.org)
The Liter of Light was selected as one of ten lighthouse projects by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to be showcased during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro this June. On the road to Rio, the project will be marching with Filipinos and Filipino-Americans in the PIDC parade in New York to highlight this unique contribution of Filipinos to the rest of the world.
