All proceeds from the sale of Agam will go to the project RE-Charge Tacloban, an integrated solar and sustainable transport services and learning facility in Tacloban, a city devastated by Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), the strongest storm ever recorded at landfall.
The crisis brought about by the supertyphoon presents in itself an opportunity to reboot development without inefficient, unreliable, and polluting energy and transport systems. iCSC believes new approaches must be taken to develop—and rebuild — safer, more resilient, sustainable communities. Re-Charge Tacloban project helps generate local jobs by hiring locally, diffusing technical expertise, and by designing appropriate business models for sustainable social enterprise through the provision of renewable energy systems coupled with electric, locally built, public transport fleets. Re-Charge Tacloban is also the site of the Solar Scholars program of iCSC, which seeks to empower humanitarian workers in local government and civil society.
