And then there was light
DAVAO DEL SUR, Philippines - Between November of 2011 and February of 2012, a total of 200 volunteer hikers trekked along 6 of the highest peaks in the Philippines carrying a simple solar solution. They delivered 500 lanterns powered by the sun.
The journey was called the Hike for Light.
A study by Planète d'Entrepreneurs found that with the solar lanterns students studied an average of 45% longer, parents saved P4,000 on energy costs each year and families increased their cash flow by nearly 25%. - Rappler.com
