Guest Post by Antonio Ingles:
In the Philippines, around 15 million Filipinos living in more than 2500 barangays (communities) nationwide have no access to electricity.
This Christmas 2012, Aral Pinoy is launching "Tanglaw sa Pag-aaral" (Guiding Light to Learning). Aral Pinoy is giving a ST1 Solar Lamp to one barangay (community) engaged in education. It is in the Community Learning Center for Palawano or the Pala'wan, an indigenous ethnic group in Sitio Magagong, Malis, Brooke's Point, Palawan. The community is 21km motorcycle-ride from the town proper and then 3-hour hike from the foot of the mountain.
Join Aral Pinoy and be part of "Tanglaw sa Pag-aaral" (Guiding Light to Learning) so that more ST1 Solar Lamps will be given to more barangays (communities).
A ST1 Solar Lamp + Shipping = approximately is Php 5,000.00 (122 USD) more or less.
A ST1 Solar Lamp is product of Hybrid Social Solutions, Inc. (HSSi)
"A durable, high-capacity solar lamp designed for off-grid use. The ST1 enables users to safely light up their houses without any risk of fire, save money spent on kerosene and batteries, and generate income through enhanced productivity. The ST1 is a top of the line solar lamp designed specifically for rural users. Manufactured for lasting performance, it provides income, security and economic opportunities." ~ HSSi
Any amount you donate to Aral Pinoy will go a long long way.
To donate please go here:
Php 50 (1.25 USD) = 50 nights of guiding light for learning
Php 250 (6 USD) = 9 months of guiding light for learning
Php 600 (5 USD) = 21 months of guiding light for learning
Php 1500 (37 USD) = 4 1/2 years of guiding light for learning
Php 4000 (98 USD) = 8 years of guiding light for learning
Thank you very much!
