STUDENTS OF SOLAR ENERGY

Each Summer SunErgy accepts a group of students for internship in solar energy. This year five lucky engineering students from the University of Buea got the opportunity.

The students are being trained in all aspects of solar energy including solar power generation, transmission, distribution, the solar business and the SunErgy idea and vision. They also participate actively working in “SunErgy villages”

“Education is a cornerstone for future development and growth of Africa; the same with electricity. The two walk hand in hand” says Mr. Mike Fohba, Managing Director of SunErgy Cameroon and responsible for the training assisted by the Technical Director Mr. John Ngam and other staff members.

“During their three months training with us, they acquire a lot of knowledge and practical skills, which will turn them into better students, while also preparing them for the job market and future jobs,” Mr. Fohba concludes, himself a part-time engineering lecturer at the University of Buea.20160808_115412

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY”

On the 15 of August we will celebrate the one-year anniversary of switching on electricity in the village of Bokosso. In addition this past year we provided the people with access to cable TV and the Internet.

Enclosed you can read how the people have experienced the past year. We named it “The peoples voice”

NEW CONTAINERS ARE READY FOR SHIPMENT

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.

SCHOOL MATERIAL FROM HAMELIN

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.”
