Solar Power for Dumagat Tribe

There is a community of Dumagats who live in the mountains of Tanay, Rizal. Most of them still practice the old ways of hunting and gathering. Their children go to school but have a hard time studying at night because there is still no electricity in the area. Last March 2013, Project Malasakit gave the Dumagats solar power panels to light up their homes and the local community school. The team braved a treacherous hike on mountains and rivers to be able to reach the remote community of the Dumagats.
