Vesta Source is a certified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization founded in June of 2018. We work to provide equal opportunity to the impoverished by making energy in the form of sustainable electricity accessible. Our desire is to even the status quo and empower the poor with light, so that they can gain the tools they need to escape poverty. Our projects primarily include distributing solar lanterns, installing solar panels, and purchasing/creating electricity generators for rural communities around the world. All of our projects are funded through diligent community fundraisers, as well as partnerships with product companies and other NGOs. We work with on-site grassroots organizations to conduct final product distributions/installations; in the past, we have partnered with Lead4Tomorrow and local church groups.
Since Vesta Source’s inception, we donated over 200 solar lights to the Maara region in Tanzania, where over half the population still live off the grid. We also raised over $4,300 USD to fund for multiple permanent generators in regions near Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. To date, our contributions total over $10,500, and we are able to reach thousands of students, farmers, teachers, village leaders, and small business owners with our light. As we continue our work, Vesta Source hopes to create more positive impact.
