Panasonic: You Can Be the Light


Siyamthanda ‘Siya’ Kolisi, South African rugby superstar, grew up in tough, underprivileged circumstances and was so inspired by Panasonic’s Solar Lantern initiative that he took an active role. This short film gives a glimpse into the initiative and ways it assists communities with no access to electricity.
