Amor de Abuela (A Grandmother's Love)

Amor de Abuela (A Grandmother's Love)

Two very similar children. Two very different opportunities at life. Areli and Anderson have been close friends since they were young. Growing up together in the remote village of Tactic in Central Guatemala, the children attend the same school, work in the same fields, and, of course, play together. While their lives seem very similar, there’s one major difference: Anderson has access to electricity; Areli does not. Anderson’s grandmother and a village leader, Ilse Lopez reflects on the changes she’s seen in Anderson’s life since receiving solar energy.

"Amor de Abuela" is an Oculus VR for Good project in conjunction with Global Brightlight Foundation.
