Water Bottle Light Bulbs Illuminate the Philippines
This is one of the most inspiring light bulb stories Ban The Bulb has ever seen...

Worldwide, hundreds of millions of people don't have access to electric light bulbs and this clever, practical solution just goes to show what is possible when you apply some lateral thinking and imagination.
