Summary:
In the Philippines' urban slums, families are unable to afford electricity and often have no access to the grid anyway. But Filipino actor Illac Diaz is looking to change that. With his organization My Shelter Foundation, he's come up with an innovative idea: turning empty plastic bottles into lamps. The bottles are filled with water and a dash of bleach before they're built into the roofs of slum huts. The organization has already installed around 300,000 of these makeshift lamps across the Philippines.
