Isang Litrong Liwanag (1 Liter of Light), MyShelter Foundation’s latest venture, is a sustainable lighting project which aims to bring the eco-friendly Solar Bottle Light to disprivileged communities worldwide. Designed and developed with students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Solar Bottle Light is is rooted on the principle of Appropriate Technologies – a concept that provides simple and easily replicable technologies that address basic needs in developing communities.
1 Liter of Light is a program inspired by many innovations from around the world. Many cultures have used glass bottles to allow lighting through the roof, and Alfredo Moser from Brazil began pioneering methods of experimenting with plastic bottles. There have been modifications to the Philippine model, which has begun to grow it to scale, and we hope that others take our work and continue to grow the concept, spreading it rapidly to empower and lighten the lives of people.
