In to today’s world 1 billion people are still living without access to electricity. Over the past 6 years we’ve distributed thousands of solar lights to energy impoverished communities and also installed solar arrays for schools and community centers in India and Puerto Rico.
Problems & Solutions
Our organization has helped over 25,000 people gain access to electricity through solar power since we launched our first project in 2014.

5 for 5 Microfinance Initiative
The 5 for 5 microfinance initiative will help the poorest villagers obtain the development, entrepreneurial and educational benefits of solar lights for their families. Our goal is to raise $100,000 within the first year to launch this microfinance social enterprise.
With your help, we can:
- Combat climate change and leapfrog dirty fossil fuel development
- Provide up to 8 hours of extra light for education and entrepreneurial activities — including cell phone charging inside the home
- Avoid the use of dangerous kerosene lanterns that cause lung disease and terrible burns in children, and
- Empower those who can least afford it with the gift of clean energy that is consumer-driven.
5 for 5 Year 1 Funding Goal
SVP can do all of this for as little as $25 per villager for a solar lantern. Please join us in the life-saving 5 for 5 solar campaign by contributing a minimum of $25 today — the cost of a solar light!
