SOLAR Hope is an NGO that aims to provide solar and sustainable solutions to marginalized communities in the Philippines. Its mission is to light communities, change lives, and give hope to people living without electricity.
Project Tanglaw is our electrification project that aims to light homes through solar that would help improve their quality of life and cope with the pandemic. Since 2017, we have lighted and become beacons of hope to 5 communities and 434 homes.
For Tanglaw Batch 4, we are looking to light 200 homes in Rizal with the campaign title “Tanglaw 4 Every Juan”. The main objective is to eventually leave no Filipino without access to energy. This project is also in partnership with Women of Global Change Philippines (WGC), Access to Energy for Communities (ATE Co.) and Brighter Future for the Next Generation.
SOLAR Hope aims to light 200 more homes; 50 homes will be lighted with solar home systems and 150 homes will be lighted with solar lanterns. Here’s the breakdown of communities to be included under Tanglaw Batch 4:
➢ Sitio Canumay, San Jose, Antipolo, Rizal: 20 Households
➢ New community (Still looking for potential communities): 150 Households
It will have an adopt-a-family sponsorship under “Light One’s Home. Light One’s Life” program. Beneficiaries will get to choose what families they would want to support then regular updates specific to that family and how it impacted their lives will also be provided to the donor.
