Panasonic Corporation is committed to the 100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project to donate a total of 100 thousand solar lanterns to the world’s non-electrified areas by the company’s 100th anniversary in 2018.Last fiscal year, a total of 2,392 solar lanterns were delivered to the Philippines and similar numbers are scheduled for donation this year as well. As a part of these efforts, on September 5, 2015, five volunteer employees of Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation (PMPC) visited and donated solar lanterns to indigenous people living in the off-grid village of Magata in Tanay municipality of Rizal province on Luzon Island.

These solar lanterns, based on PMPC employees proposal were decorated with handmade lantern shades with images and messages drawn by 20 of its employees. The lanterns gave courage to the villagers who without access to electricity face much harsher conditions in comparison to those in the city in terms of safety, health, and education.Panasonic, together with employees and the general public, will continue to deliver solar lanterns to people of the world living without electricity.
