Egbe Jimmy – Installation of Solar Energy Unit in Meveo Village, Cameroon

Date grant awarded: June 18, 2019

The Installation of Solar Energy Unit in Meveo Village, Cameroon is a community led initiative whereby every individual is invited – and encouraged – to participate. Ashu Egbe James, the project’s leader, shares that it has been a long-time dream of the community to have light and the ability to power their own utilities via a charging station. The community’s renewed and sharpened hopes of acquiring free flow information updates, communication, uninterrupted connection, and little trekking to benefit from these services is coming true.

A grant from The Pollination Project will assist in purchasing equipment to establish the solar charging station, including panels, electricity conductors, sockets, batteries, bulbs, and switches.
