“We are very happy for the attention we are getting” Dr. Skjørshammer says, continuing “this time it is from Swedish Television. The support of people around is fantastic, greatly benefiting our work and is very inspiring”.
Next solar containers are ready for shipment to Cameroon. “We are moving on, installing electricity, cable television and internet”, Dr. Skjørshammer says, who continues “our teams both in Cameroon, Norway and Sweden are fantastic. A lot of efforts goes into this project. It takes dedication and hard work. The rewards are fantastic, happy smiles and faces as people switch on electricity and gather around to watch television. Nothing could be better.”
Together with the equipment are various school materials donated by the French Office Supply company Hamelin through their branches in Denmark and Norway.
The next shipment of containers to Cameroon includes also school material donated by the French Office Supply Company “Hamelin” through its subsidiaries in Denmark and Norway.
“Hamelin has donated a large quantity of school material to be given to the students in the schools in the “SunErgy villages” said Mr. Wendel, responsible for the donation. “In fact, it is enough to fill a whole container with school materials, which we also will do. We will, as time and space permits, pack it in some of the many containers with what solar equipment is being shipped, meaning that it will be shipped at no cost for SunErgy.
“Hamelin” was going through its inventory due to moving the warehouse to Germany, asking if we could have use for these materials. And I might add, these is great materials, all new and not some throw away. It is all good! We are very thankful to “Hamelin” and its management for their donation showing real corporate social responsibility. It will come to good use for the students in the villages. We have already informed students, teachers and principals in some of the school about this fantastic gift. They are jubilant.”

SunErgy has just placed new orders for equipment to power the next three villages. The picture shows representatives from SunErgy, 2 Mites and Eltek.
“This is milestone achievement ”, Mr. Haugen says. “Things are really moving forward with great speed. It is almost unbelievable how far we have come in a fairly short time. There is no denial that the road from time to time has been rather bumpy. But as we all know, difficulties are made to be overcome. Now, it is full speed ahead!”
“SunErgy is also working on an order for the next twelve villages to be installed during the first six months of 2016”, Dr. Skjørshammer adds. In a week or two, they will be confirmed and signed. Our cooperation with the suppliers are the best. We are very pleased, moving forward together.”
“2 Mites plays an important role in making electricity available for the households. SunErgy provides the electricity, while the cost of wiring the house is the responsibility of each family. 2 Mites provides the needed micro financing,” Mr. Knut-Arne Wendel says. “We are really appreciating all people buying loan certificates. We only need many more.”
