Over the last few years, I have been very impressed with the dedicated work that has been done by New Vision Renewable Energy. Not only do they provide badly needed solar lights to third world countries, but also educate those of us who tend to take artificial lighting for granted, forgetting that without light, so little can be accomplished.
The heart of New Vision is in the right place. They are dedicated to bringing their solar lights to the poorest places of the world by involving youth groups, churches, mission organizations as well as businesses and corporations. It is wonderful to be involved in an organization who is trying to help improve the lives of families who live in darkness around the world.
New Vision Renewable Energy ("NVRE") is a charitable organization that has changed the world, literally one light as a time, and does so with great enthusiasm, faith and a sense of kindness for humanity. The organization teaches people, nationally and internationally, how to implement solar and sustainable energy into their world so that they may have light after sundown (when previously there was none) or so that they may be free of kerosene and other pollutant-based forms of energy. And then they provide the sustainable-energy equipment as well! NVRE brings light to those who have none in remarkable ways-and with great success.
By providing light to communities who may only have light as as long as the sun is up, New Vision gives people hope and a chance develop their families and communities. Those of us who stay up late take light for granted. Until I had heard about New Vision Renewable Energy, I hadn't realized how many people still use kerosene for light. NVRE's work truly is life changing.
NVRE is a faith-based non-profit bringing renewable energy solutions and products to people that have none. That in itself is life changing to all people in need. Renewable energy is a global concern and the dedicate folks at NVRE are committed to the research, development and supply of affordable and effective renewable energy solutions and products.
NRVE has been a great partner as I teach students at West Virginia University about collective stewardship of the earth and all her resources. I've brought students to see the operations up on the ridge, engaged students in the construction of solar lights and most recently involved students in a project to raise funds for, and build, water filters and solar lights for a fellow student from Ethiopia. The work NRVE is doing around the world to raise awareness of energy poverty, and to address it with on the ground projects, is top notch--very glad to be a small part of it all and I encourage others to do the same.
NVRE was inspired by a spirit centered vision to use solar renewable energy to respond to the needs of some of the poorest areas of the US and overseas. With previous experience in these areas, and sound technical staff, they have and are designing, fabricating, distributing and supporting these systems in the field. Their onsite presence and strategic partnerships enhance their ability to serve. I wholeheartedly endorse continued support of NVRE to help them grow and expand their vision and capabilities.
NVRE is doing great things to change the world that we live in. From educating youth on climate issues, solar energy, and business to sending solar lights to those who are fighting Ebola, they are truly lighting up the world! We need more organizations like NVRE who genuinely care and who are willing to work hard to make the changes that are necessary to improve the quality of life for those in need.
NVRE is a growing organization developing power and light technology that offers people opportunity to succeed in becoming strong members of the community. They invest a lot in developing their products to help the need of bringing light to people around the world. There are a lot of great people working here who you can learn from and make friends for life.
I know NVRE very well. I've visited their site in West Virginia and came home driving a vegetable oil powered car! I traveled with them when they donated over 200 solar lights to a community in Kenya where my organization worked. I was even in the live radio audience when Ruston Seaman recently received the prestigious e-Town humanitarian award on NPR radio. NVRE is the real deal, can't speak highly enough of their work!
New Vision has sent solar lights to 32 countries around the world. With a small staff, they have done miraculous things. Right now they are in the midst of trying to send Solar light to their in-country partner in Liberia to help them fight the spread of Ebola. They have changed the lives of families, but especially women and children. Thousands of stories of success. They have helped remove Kerosene lamps and their toxic fumes and replacing them with Solar lights, they have help start-up micro-businesses using their solar panels and batteries to sell phone charges, girls moving up in school because they can study at night, allowing them to not have to marry early or worse. The stories go on and on. Selfless wonderful group and people
