Updated: Oct 22, 2021
Meet Jovie Gil Montajes! Jovie is the founder of Light of Hope PH. Light Of Hope PH aims to provide beyond light and energy to communities. Their CloudgridProject allows off-grid communities in Philippines to take charge of their future with micro-entrepreneurship and push for global change!
The sustainable cities and communities scene is an exciting space to be in with founders like Jovie. They are an amazing part of the sustainability community that continues to inspire us everyday.
Light of Hope PH is an amazing grassroots movement from Cebu, Philippines aiming to help mitigate climate change and uplift the lives of the less privileged off-the-grid communities through the use of clean renewable energy technologies and Internet of Things technologies.
Similar to Mamato, Jovie is one of the 1,140 eager signups from 2020, who wanted to turn their passion for sustainability into impact, with our Young Sustainable Impact SEA program and we are amazed by how far he has come since then.
