We are hard at work electrifying villages enabling people to escape poverty, moving into a better and brighter future.
Yesterday (June 2) two solar containers were released from the harbor in Douala on record time. First time we shipped containers to Cameroon, we struggled for six months to have the containers released. This time it took only four weeks. Real progress.
One may look for the reasons are behind this “real progress”. It could be a combination of several factors. One is that things are improving and moving forward in Cameroon, which is great and encouraging for future developments. The second (and for sure), we have also learned a thing or two about shipping containers to Cameron and having them released without any major hick-ups or delays. Both important. Time for celebration! Soon more families will have access to electricity, moving out of darkness to a brighter and more prosperous future.
Enclosed are some pictures showing the containers arriving our HQ and lifted off the trucks and some of the employees celebrating the safe, sound and speedy release of the containers.
In the containers was also school materials donated by the French company Hamelin to be distributed to schoolchildren in the villages when school starts this fall.
