Liter of Light Estonia, is a project run under the ANDAKIDZ non-profit organization.
Read or download the photo book about our project where we installed 2,000 solar bottle lights in Anda, Bohol.
In poor homes, even in the day time, some rooms are dark (due to lack of windows) and this means difficulties for children who want to play, read, study or draw inside.
Kitchens are often dark too which creates hardship for the mothers at cooking times.
By bringing solar powered light bulbs into their homes we create a more enjoyable environment that benefits the whole family.
See photos in our facebook gallery.
Liter of Light Estonia installed 2,000 bottle lights, in collaboration with our Anda partner TAFIAS (Talisay Fishermen’s Association) between 2014/5.
This project was only possible thanks to The Estonian Government who are co-financing this “development aid” project.

ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
The technology uses sunshine and an old plastic bottle filled with water and a little bleach to produce a 55-watt solar bulb that refracts sunlight!
It’s powerful enough to light up a home but more than that it’s environmentally friendly, inexpensive, and easy to make.
Solar bottle lights should last up to 5 years.

The funding we received from the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was fantastic and it went a long way to help us finance the manufacture and installation of 2000 solar bottle lights. But it was not quite enough. So we are thankful for the private donors who helped make up the difference.
In the future we aim to bring more solar lights to the people of Anda.
