Our Story

I started Rays4Hope in the summer of 2019 because of a passion and fascination for renewable energy. We are living in a renewable energy revolution, and I wanted to be a part of the movement. I became fascinated with micro grids and their imense utility in rural countries all over the world. These grids give isolate villagers access to power which helps work, family dynamics, and overall quality of life. 

I immediately called my uncle in Bangladesh and introduced him to the initiative. Within two months, we installed 5 panels, which have completely changed the lives of villagers, and we haven't looked back since. Currently, we have 46 solar panels in Bangladesh and 9 in Ghana. Our next goal is to start installing panels in Madagascar.  Our team has also grown to 19 world- wide members and many partners. 

I am so fortunate that I have found the intersection between my passion for renewable energy and my passion for outreach. This is just where the story starts. Equipped with a knowledgable team and extensive energy infrastructure, the organization is ready to make sizable change in developing regions and bringing the coveted resource of electricity to those in need.
