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.
We have just finished the booklet “African Village Entrepreneurship”. We got the ten first copies from the printer last week. As far as we know, this is the first booklet of its kind written for people who live in far off villages, such as deep in the rainforest of Cameroon.
We will use the book at the various entrepreneurship training seminars we arrange and also give to people who want to start their own business. That it will bring inspiration and knowledge for a successful start up.
This is big for us, but it will hopefully prove even bigger for the people for whom it is intended.
