Story

Our Humble Beginnings

A Glimpse of Hope

SOLAR Hope was founded in December 1, 2017 as a positive outcome of the founder’s (Mark) struggle with depression. He is an achiever, a leader and a multi-talented person. But early in 2017, he was diagnosed with depression. The next few months of battling against his condition nearly pushed him on the verge of giving up his life. However, his breakthrough came when he joined an outreach to the Bajao settlement in Malitam, Batangas.

The Fire Rekindled

What he thought was an opportunity for him to help despite his condition became, instead, an avenue for the community to help him realize his sense of purpose. Piece by piece, he regained his passion of reaching out to other people, which he believes to be what he will do for the rest of his life.

Passing on the Beacon of Hope

Today, he along with his team seek to offer their best to give light and hope to the lives and houses of people in need. They endeavor to challenge other people to join their advocacy and to become Beacons of Hope to the rest of the world.
