Assessment of the solidarity energy week challenge

Last week was the Energy Solidarity Week!

The objective of this week: to put under the spotlight the problems of access to electricity and water by proposing to as many people as possible to collectively take up the challenge of reaching the distance between Paris and Ouagadougou (in Burkina Faso) and Ouagadougou and Yaoundé (in Cameroon), that is to say a total of 4074 km + 2125 km.

Partners, volunteers, individuals, sponsors, alone or with family/friends/colleagues, athletes or not, from the youngest to the oldest, dozens of people were mobilized to meet the challenge!

This unprecedented wave of solidarity allowed us to exceed by far the 6199 km necessary to reach Yaoundé since the counter now shows more than 9000 km!!!

The participants innovated: walking, hiking, running, cycling, rollerblading, canoeing, all means were good to accumulate the precious kilometers!

  • Thank you to our sponsors Alexandre Poussin and Lucile Razet (our sponsor Sonia Poussin who continues to accumulate kilometers) who have mobilized at our side in this great solidarity adventure!
  • Thank you to all our partners who have once again committed themselves to us throughout the week!
  • Thank you to all the individuals who have accumulated so many kilometers!
  • Thank you to the volunteers of Electriciens sans frontières who organized and participated in events all over France!

Consult the program of events scheduled until October 17th

Because the challenge is open until October 17th, Electricians Without Borders invites you to continue the adventure: I still have miles to go!
