Community Center of Ecopia basically completed

First pictures of the house in Chencha - power is still missing

After the beginning of our works at the main building of the Ecopia-Organisation in Chencha, we now got the first pictures of the completed building. Mitslal Kifleyesus sent us the pictures last week after her trip to Chencha.

The complex of Ecopia should serve the farmers in Chencha to conserve and refine their crop, for example fruits or herbs. But therefore they need electricity. So electricity should be produced by our photovoltaic system, which will be installed by our project team in autumn 2012 next to the main building. By the way – the toilet and shower we have erected in autumn 2011 still work faultlessly.
