Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery

Solight Design, Inc. has also been recognized by the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), as one of 7 new projects working to create measurable change for hurricane rebuilding and resilience as part of CGI’s Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery.

President Bill Clinton addressed over 350 leaders from government, business, and civil society at the second formal meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery in Miami last week. The leaders worked to develop new, specific commitments to help islands recover from last year’s devastating hurricane season, continue to prepare for this year’s storms, and address long-term recovery needs.

Solight Design has committed their efforts to work with CGI and the Hispanic Federation to donate and distribute 50,000 their solar lanterns to communities without reliable access to grid power in Puerto Rico.
