Creation of a solar processing unit in Mekomo, central Cameroon

This SEPS project aims to build a multifunctional mill run by solar energy to process corn and cassava crops in Mekomo, Cameroon. Phase one started two months ago with an informatory meeting of authorities and the local people. Furthermore, the project team is currently appointing a management committee for the processing unit, which will soon start its first training sessions.

GLOBSUD, the project coordinator, also started communicating the project by producing brochures, pamphlets and information cards that are distributed to raise awareness in the local population. The communication program will continue to spread information via the local community radio (including FM Radio Women) and other local media.
