Today (March 17) the next solar containers were loaded unto a ship destined for Cameroon and the village of Kotho. In a few months more than 500 families or 2500 people, plus schools, health centers and businesses will see an end to their nightmare, having electricity, cable TV and Internet.
Finally they access to the outside world and a real opportunity to escape poverty, moving into a brighter and better future.
Years of darkness ending! All for less than one Cameroonian beer per day! Light triumphing darkness!
It can not get much better than this?!
In Sub-Saharan there are 800 million more dreams waiting to come true. We are hard at work.
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!

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.”
