Ministry grant funds village hydro-plant

"I have discovered that a local initiative in the production of electricity is possible," says Ndiyun Donatus of the Djottin Area Development Authority. "It is common in many less developed countries on a small scale. So, I researched how it is done, adapted a plan to meet the needs for this area and successfully created a mini-hydroelectric system that produces a small but dependable quantity of electricity."

Ndiyun shared this video showing system development.

Sister Eileen McKenzie met Ndiyun while she lived in the African country of Cameroon, visiting the village of Djottin often. Recent visits motivated her to sponsor a ministry grant to support the project. 

"This is a relatively simple project that can impact the quality of living in Djottin," says Sister Eileen. "Establishing this plant will decrease the use of generators, improve the services offered at the health center and increase tech-based opportunities for the children who attend the local school."
