In 2019, GFF HELPS Philippines Team has worked on Solar Project in two new villages following the success of the first Solar Project in Panipiason in January of the same year. Medina and Mamba are neighbouring villages of Panipiason, located in the furthest mountains of Madalag, Aklan. Both villages have only been connected to the main electrical grid two to three years ago. However, many residents, especially those who live very far away from the village centre and those who cannot afford the labour costs are still using kerosene for light at night.

Libraries are an important part of a student’s life. It gives the students an opportunity to explore new stories, facts and fiction to get lost into. Most importantly it builds up a reading habit which leads to acquiring new and valuable knowledge, fosters creativity and develops their communication skills.

Natural Science is everywhere in today’s world. It is part of our daily lives, from consumption of food, taking care of plants and animals, to salting duck eggs, to gardening, to sprouting of mungbeans, to experimenting, to dyeing of shirts, and to earth’s rotation and sun’s activity. Science are transforming our world at an unbelievable pace, and we should equip to that. There is the need to teach Science because being “science literate” will no longer be just an advantage but an absolute necessity, especially to those young adult students or dropped-out youths who are still striving hard to finish their education.
