Q: Where does the name OML come from?
Q: Where does the name "One Million Lights" (OML) come from and why is it important?
A: The name comes from our parent organization, One Million Lights located in Palo Alto. What's interesting about the Philippines Chapter is that it is the only other OML office, and it is completely youth driven on a volunteer basis.
To me the name is figurative to represent we will continue to light up communities until every Filipino home has access to clean, safe, and affordable lighting. We've been working on this project for almost 5 years, and yet we've only distributed just over 13,000. A million is just so far, but it's not exactly out of reach. It communicates the idea that we'll be here for the long haul.
