• FAQ: Changemakers... Part 1

    Every day, fifteen million Filipinos plummet into complete darkness. With little to no access to electricity, Filipinos rely on the dangerous, dim flicker of a kerosene lamp. A WHO study revealed that inhaling four hours of a kerosene lamp is equivalent to smoking two packs of cigarettes. Every year, 4.3 million people die due to illnesses caused by household air pollution.
    One Million Lights is a non-profit eliminating the need for kerosene gas lamps in the developing world by replacing them with rechargeable, safe, solar-powered lanterns.
    For the past five years, Changemaker Mark Lozano has been the co-founder to One Million Lights Philippines. As of January 2015, he has sold 11,940 lights across the Philippine islands.
