Continuing to champion indigenous peoples’ rights, the ICTSI Foundation has partnered with non-profit organization Project Liwanag to bring electricity to Aeta communities in Capas, Tarlac using solar energy.

 

Last 8 February, the Foundation and Project Liwanag PH signed the Memorandum of Agreement for the Communal Micro-grid Solar PV Electrification Project, which will benefit around 120 to 140 families in Sitio Malalabatay and Sitio Alunan-Purok 3 in Barangay Sta. Juliana.  Under the agreement, the Foundation will fund the installation of two communal micro-grid solar PV electrification systems.

 

Project Liwanag PH is committed to empowering and improving the quality of life of indigenous peoples in the Philippines through sustainable projects and grassroots partnerships.
