Enclosed are the latest pictures from Kotho 1, taken today.
The pictures show the solar park and the batteries installed. We will start charging the batteries next week getting ready for September 8. Do we need to tell that the whole village is filled with excitement and expectations? 8 of September cannot come soon enough! Generations of waiting are over. Light is here. Hopes and dream coming through!
A big applause and salute to Mr. Mike Fohba, Managing Director of SunErgy Cameroon and his team! They have been working hard and diligently under extreme condition, this being the rainy season.
Guys, we salute you! You are real heroes!

September 8 will be a milestone day in the history of Kotho 1; they will have access to electricity, Cable TV and Internet.
Mr. Mike, Managing Director of SunErgy Cameroon and his 30 member team are working hard and diligently to make a brighter and more prosperous future come through for the people of Kotho 1.
On our visit to Kotho 1 a couple of weeks ago, we were accompanied by a team from HiTV in Buea who made the following report for you to enjoy.
Please spread the good news. Let the world know!
See our video on Youtube:
On the 8 of September we will switch on electricity in Kotho 1 – the third village in the project.
Work is going full speed ahead with more than twenty people working in the village wiring homes, constructing the solar park and building the grid for electricity, cable TV and Internet.
The excitement and expectation is to be felt as soon as you arrive at the village; the dawn of a new day!
Enclosed are four pictures from Dr. Skjorshammers visit last week, showing young electrician going to wire a home, a home just being wired, pulling a 2000 meter cable for the grid from the solar power station to the road by hand and pulling 4000 meter cable constructing the grid using a car. Hard manual work! But then, we are deep into the rainforest! Not very sophisticated, but it works! The rainy season does not make it any easier. Soon September 8 is here and more than 100 years of darkness turns to light! More than 3 000 people will experience pure joy! Waiting is over!
