July 5 2019, Embrace donated d.light ST100 solar torches to representatives of the Iwak Tribe from Itogon, Benguet. The area was among the areas affected by Typhoon Ompong last September 2018. Among the challenges faced by the community is limited access to electricity, due to their location - one of the mountainous areas of Benguet and home of Mt. Ugo. Most of the families are engaged in farming (vegetables, coffee, etc), labor works, and tour guiding. The solar torches are meant to empower the Iwak families, especially in times of disasters, so that light will be available even without electricity.
