We have just finished the booklet “African Village Entrepreneurship”. We got the ten first copies from the printer last week. As far as we know, this is the first booklet of its kind written for people who live in far off villages, such as deep in the rainforest of Cameroon.
On the video, we tried to present the book. I was talking, while Lana was making the video using her mobile phone. You could say that we arranged our own press conference in launching of the booklet. Hopefully you all understand and appreciate.
We will use the book at the various entrepreneurship training seminars we arrange and also give to people who want to start their own business. That it will bring inspiration and knowledge for a successful start up.
This is big for us, but it will hopefully prove even bigger for the people for whom it is intended.

On the Christmas week Bokosso witnessed the building of a 15 meter high internet tower. The tower enables the people in the village to connect with the world. Everything is available- search on Google, meet friends on Facebook, communicate with family and friends on Skype. A whole new world has opened up!

Finally people have access to television. And they are liking it. “Almost every family have bought a television”says Mr. Mike Fohba, Managing director of SunErgy Cameroon, and continues “as soon as we bring them to the village, they are being taken. By the end of January all homes will have at least one set, some two.”
Along with switching on electric, SunErgy provided hot water kettles for boiling clean water. “It is fantastic,” one mother said “finally we can give our children clean water to drink and it is healthy. It is amazing what happens in Bokosso now that we have access to electricity. It is a dream come through.”

In the beginning of December electricity was installed in the health center together with security light outside. “Now the health center is lit at night,inside and outside”, said one of the nurses. “It is fantastic to have light. It makes everything so much easier and more pleasant for both us and our patients. And besides, now we can offer better service and care. Soon we will be able to work like a real a hospital.”
