Mang Demi Solar is an ingenious inventor who repurposes used soda bottles to light up homes in Metro Manila. The bottles are filled with just filtered water and bleach. The result is a light bulb that is comparable to a 55-watt bulb! With the help of the MyShelter Foundation, you can help Mang Demi light up more homes in Metro Manila through the Isang Litrong Liwanag Project.

Quoting the Isang Litrong Liwanag website:
According to statistics from the National Electrification Commission in 2009, 3 million households still remain powerless outside Metro Manila. And even in the metro, families still continue to live in darkness. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) has reported that a large number of fire- related incidents involve faulty electrical connections. Informal settlements are high-risk areas, since the BFP does not conduct fire hazard inspections in these communities. MyShelter envisions sharing to unprivileged communities an economically- and ecologically-sustainable source of light that will provide an immediate solution to our fellowmen’s problems.
