They visited two communities in Puerto Rico which were Caño Martín Peña and Loíza, both located near the capital of San Juan.

After the trip in January, the collaboration continued and these students will be returning to the communities in October 2018 to install solar light kits within the community of Caño Martín Peña.

LIA intends on continuing to work with these communities and releasing a longer film in the future after the the completion on their upcoming project in October of 2018.
