Remembering Ray Guardiano, a cherished mentor and friend whose light shone brightly in our hearts. His unwavering dedication to the Global TIES program left a lasting impact on the lives he touched. Ray's passion for sustainable energy solutions was contagious, and his guidance inspired countless students to dream bigger and work harder.

Through his involvement in the Global TIES Baja Solar Water Heater project, Ray empowered the team to design and install multiple solar water heater systems, improving the lives of countless children in Tijuana. His commitment to creating a brighter future for these children was unmatched, and his efforts have left a lasting legacy of hope and warmth.

Join us as we gather to celebrate the remarkable life of Raymond A. Guardiano. Together, we will honor his immense contributions to the Global TIES program and remember the warmth, kindness, and determination that defined him. Let us cherish the memories and stories that highlight his path.

Ray’s Celebration of Life:
📅 Date: Sunday, June 25, 2023
⏰ Time: 2 pm- 6 pm

Here we have students from the ENG 100L “One Village Philippines” section working on a prototype for a solar-powered cart to charge cell phones during blackouts caused by natural disasters. In the video, the students are sawing a hole into a cooler to make space to attach USB ports that people can plug their phones into.
