Liter of Light, a Filipino-born global grassroots solar lighting movement, has partnered with the country’s leading e-commerce platform, Lazada Philippines, for its Light It Forward campaign.
The partnership with Lazada will allow volunteers to purchase solar lighting kits through a special page on the Lazada platform, to assemble and donate to communities across the Philippines that need electricity.
“Lazada’s mission has always been geared towards nation-building. We aim to accelerate progress through commerce and technology,” says Lazada Philippines CEO Ray Alimurung. “We believe that electricity is an important resource for our community to stay connected during these times. Through Lazada’s partnership with Liter of Light, we hope to enable more Filipinos to have access to this basic need.”
“Our partnership with Lazada will allow us to reach a wider network of potential volunteers,” said Liter of Light Founder Illac Diaz.” The LIGHT IT FORWARD challenge, which was born as a digital campaign, has found the ideal partner in helping us to fulfill our mission to empower off-grid communities across the country.”
The Light It Forward store is live on the Lazada platform, just in time for Lazada’s highly anticipated 11.11 Shopping Festival.
The APSIPA-awarded Light it Forward campaign is led by the Liter of Light Foundation in partnership with GoodNewsPilipinas.com and the Rotary Club of Makati Business District.
