Our Mission

Vesta Source is a high school student-run nonprofit initiative. We work to bridge the technology gap between urban and rural areas with sustainable solutions for light and electricity. We believe that access to stable power is a basis for creating a better quality of life, and are dedicated to providing opportunities for people leave poverty behind. Vesta Source aims to be a source of power in the lives of many, lighting the way through installing solar panels and solar-powered lightbulbs in the schools, town centers, and homes of impoverished communities.

Accessibility

is the cornerstone of our manifesto. Our vision of a world connected to electricity begins with it.

Quality

is what we bring to the table. With our aid, we hope that people can lead lives of higher quality and fulfillment.

Dedication

is who we are. We care about what we do. Poverty is a real issue, and our way of helping is to equip those in need with electricity.

90% of sub-Saharan African primary schools lack access to electricity.

In Uganda, it is common for children to study with candles, inducing thousands of fires and burn accidents. In South Africa, over 800,000 children are hospitalized each year due to accidentally ingesting kerosene from oil lamps at school.

Electricity can prevent these unnecessary accidents and improve quality of life and education. Electricity can extend study hours, enhance learning experiences, and positively impact youth literacy rates. Electricity is the key to lifting these children out of poverty.

Here at Vesta Source, we believe in providing the impoverished with the tools they need  to empower themselves. Access to electricity is just the beginning.
