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!
