PROJECT GODJIBOUE

About the Project

Goal : €6,500 / €6,500

Project Godjiboué was successfully launched in February 2018, giving 350 people access to solar energy. The project is run in cooperation with our solar partners PARO-CI and SunWaterLife. Godjiboué is situated in the South-West part of Ivory Coast and currently, the village is not connected to the electrical grid.

The current sources of energy in the village are; torches, kerosene lamps, candle lights, and some solar panels. Now after installment of our solar panels, over 350 people have been given the opportunity to access clean, renewable energy. This enables them to charge their phones, have light for studies and other activities during the evening and in general light up each individual home.

Project size
75 home solar kits, 350 inhabitants

Project period
February 2018 - February 2019.

Product
The solar kits that we have distributed include three light bulbs that can be unplugged from the cord and used as torches, they have 3 different light intensities and can be adjusted with a remote control, as well as a small charging system that can charge four phones at a time. The latter is very important as it gives people the chance to charge their phones at their homes and they do not have to rely on a charging service where they are obliged to leave their phone the whole day in order to be fully charged. This will help people to be connected and able to make calls when they need it.
