SLAK 5 - EduSol Cameroon

An education and development cooperation project of ISC Konstanz e.V.  -  in Cameroon

Project description

The villages Botbadjang and Ndambog are located in the rainforest of Cameroon with no connection to the national grid. In order to contribute to better conditions for education, ISC Konstanz installed photovoltaic systems to support the primary school in Ndambog and the vocational training school in Botbadjang together with students of the Dual College Baden-Württemberg in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Electricity now supplies lighting and current for educational devices. The vocational school students also received a training in solar energy and maintenance. The German students played a very important role in these trainings and had been previously prepared by our ISC team for their role as multiplicators. Both schools received self-made didactic material for a continuous solar education.
