|The ‘Give Them Light’ project is a photographic journey about creating awareness into the lives of children living without basic needs and in poverty.

HAPPENING NOW: Tribe Villages in PAHANG, SABAH & SARAWAK - Malaysia
Please do support this, share and purchase the solar lights for the families & children living in poverty. We are heading to Pahang and then Sabah & Sarawak to get the stories and send solar lights into this places.
The Semai orang asli (indigenous) people of Cameron Highlands have been living on this hill area in Bertam. The 15 families here are still living with no electricity or no proper source of living since they relocated here. Many more families in parts of Pahang are still living with no electricity. The Dusun, Kimaragang & Rungus tribes in Sabah are still living with no electricity and in poverty. We would need about 500 lights (250 families) to start with.

CURRENT ACTIVE PROJECT
SOLAR LIGHTS FOR MIRACLE ISLAND - 480 solar lights needed
LOCATIONS: BALIGUIAN ISLAND, CONCEPCION, PHILLIPINES
"When the super typhoon came in Nov 2013, it destroyed all 190 houses here, it is a miracle the families survived, when I walked around this island on July 14th, it's unbelievable how these children still live with leaking homes when it rains and mostly in the dark."
There is still no power yet and its not expected to be any electricity here for some time. They use generators, kerosene fuel and torchlights here which gives them a single light for about 2-3 hours daily. Families also have to pay for fuel to be used for generators. This effects their daily source of income too. For water, food and school, they have to take a boat to travel to the main land for 1-2 hours daily.
