You can give light to others! With your support, we will be able to cover the necessary expenses so that engineer Elio Silva can go to the Kamarata Valley (a very remote and beautiful destination, located in the Bolivar state of Venezuela), and repair the hydroelectric plant (which is extremely deteriorated since 2006), so 3000 indigenous people who live in that area, can have the benefit of electric power.
Due to its isolated location, electric service is very important for the social well-being of the Kamarata Valley: It allows electricity in schools, internet for the population, communication with food and medicines suppliers (which can only arrive to the community by air), electricity for the hospital’s medical equipment, etc.
Because of the lack of electricity service, the community has had to resort to mobile (diesel and fuel) power plants. Which are much more expensive, and pollute the environment.
This project started because, during a trip to this beautiful community, the former president of the Venezuelan-French Chamber of Commerce, became interested in the “energy issue” in Kamarata. The Eposak team took him to know the hydroelectric plant, and when he noticed all the malfunctions, he decided to support the cause. Then, he sent a team from his organization to do a diagnosis in order to develop a project. We were almost there, now we just required a leader who could prioritize what is needed to carry out the project.
Today we have found a candidate: the engineer Elio Silva, who is very enthusiastic to lead this project, and to do all this important work. He will be the one who can tell us what failures are presented, and where we should begin so that the hydroelectric plant starts to work.
However, we need to cover his salary for approximately 6 months of work, and for this we must raise USD $ 1900, so that he can be exclusively dedicated to this cause.
We are counting on you so that Kamarata can have electricity. Thank you for supporting us!
