Godoholo is situated in the south-east part of Suriname, approximately two days into the Amazonas by canoe from capital Paramaribo.
Currently powered by a diesel generator, the inhabitants will soon have electricity generated from the 756 solar panels, enough to supply the whole village with renewable energy.
The remote location makes it a challenge to domestically transport the needed equipment, which can only be done by utilizing the rivers during the rainy season.
JGH expects to hand over the system by August next year.
