Light is one of the life’s most basic necessities, yet many underprivileged families spend their nights without it.
In a research conducted by Swiss-based non-profit organization Stiftung Solarenergie (Solar Energy Foundation), Filipino households with a monthly budget of P7,000 use 230 candles in one year, eight batteries in one month and one liter of kerosene in one week—but often, these do not provide sufficient lighting.
As part of its efforts to provide off-grid communities access to sustainable lighting, Stiftung Solarenergie is organizing a benefit run dubbed Run for Light on July 21, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The proceeds of the run will go to funding solar lighting solutions for beneficiary families.
