Project Liwanag PH

We are Project Liwanag PH, a non-profit organization formed by a group of fresh graduates from the Ateneo de Manila University. Our journey began in 2015 during our college immersion under the PRAXIS program of the Office for Social Concern and Involvement. In Sitio Yangka, one of the Aeta communities in the mountains of Tarlac, we experienced the beauty that the indigenous Aetas have to offer. From their hospitality and generosity to their language, culture, and traditions - they shared their lives with us. Moved by this and made aware of the maginalization faced by the community, our group along with our immersion formator decided to create communal solar electrification project to address one of their expressed needs: light. A year later, the group decided to register as a non-profit organization in order to properly serve the many more indigenous communtiies and address the lack of basic needs: light, water, education, and sustainable livelihood. We hope to extend the light that was first shared with us to the numerous indigenous communities in the For any questions/inquiries, feel free to message us here on Facebook or through e-mail at
