This is a project launched by Enactus members in the University of Surrey.
The project aims to provide a low-cost, sustainable Source of light to rural Filipinos in the Philippines (Visayas) who do not have access to the national energy line and provide a source of income to our beneficiaries as well. Currently they depend on Kerosene and other unsafe resources, which can cause damage to their health and the environment they live in.
We have developed a solar powered bottle which converts sunlight to a light source (as shown in the image). This bottle will be placed on the rooftops of houses. During the day, the solution in the bottle will refract sunlight; lighting up the room. While during the night, the bottle can be used as a night lamp from the solar energy stored in the batteries during the day.
Currently we are working with the Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) - Visayas to launch the product in the Negros Region of the Philippines.
The proceeds of this campaign will directly help fund the implementation of the project to improve the lives of the villagers.
