Coffee Bean partners with NGO to provide solar lamps to Sarangani community
You drink your coffee to perk yourself up for your study session or workday but wouldn’t it be better if that cup of coffee can also help light up the homes of a community that still has no electricity?
Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has partnered with Stiftung Solarenergie Philippines to provide solar lamps to 50 households in Langinan, Sarangani province so that children can study at home while their parents can do their chores even if it gets dark.
The campaign marks the first step that the coffee specialist is taking to make a dent out of the 20 million Filipinos who have yet to benefit from electricity.
To support the campaign, you only need to add P5 to any purchase at the store to do your part in helping these families live a literally brighter life. That’s how you put your coffee fix to good use. (ANGEL ONG)
