FOR ABOUT 20 MILLION FILIPINOS,
LIFE STANDS STILL AT THE SETTING OF THE SUN.


One in five Filipinos has no access to electricity. So for them,
productivity and opportunities are put on hold as soon as the world
turns dark. Students find it harder to study and learn, livelihood
slows down, and simple chores become harder. Rural midwives
and health workers have to help deliver babies with flashlights
and candles. Teachers have to browse through paperwork
with only kerosene lanterns to provide light. 


Our aim is to shine a light on a brighter future for all of them.

Laginan Integrated School serves over 300 students from the Tagkaulo tribe
in Southern Philippines. Dim lights and fumes from kerosene lanterns
discourage them from reading and studying at night — stunting their learning. 


SHINE Laginan aims to help provide the students with environments that
are more conducive to learning, so they can continue their education —
even at home. Through our solar custodianship program, we incentivize
families to keep their children involved in school, motivated to achieve, and
equipped for a brighter future.

Dina and Prescilla from Baco, Oriental Mindoro, share how having solar lights has transformed their
lives as students. The impact this has brought them is what we hope to do for the youth of Laginan in
Sarangani, paving the way for a brighter future.
