Grassroots innovator presents his latest venture at TEDx Dubai…

Social entrepreneurs like Illac Diaz are changing the world. While many twenty or thirty-somethings claim the title, Illac is a true grassroots innovator. In this video, he presents A Liter of Light at TEDx Dubai.

The campaign has gotten major international publicity in recent months, and it was obvious that Illac was on the move when he was featured in a panel on social entrepreneurship at the JFK Forum at the Harvard Kennedy School in 2008.

After meeting Illac Diaz and witnessing his progress, he has distinguished himself as an intelligent, compassionate, constructive, and optimistic leader who is a great example for others working on poverty and sustainable development issues in their own countries.

Illac established the MyShelter Foundation to create a system of sustainability and reliability through capability building and employment-generating projects and A Liter of Light (Isang Litrong Liwanag) is its latest venture.
