Dear Andrius ,Janet, Graham and all,
Thanks for your recent postings which we have all
read. We are amazed to read about the mobile phones
that are cheap .If that can work out for the future we
will like to sell some at ACTWID here. The second hand
phones here largely depend on how long they have been
in use and the various marks and designs too. Some are
good quality and some low. We are thinking that the
mobile phone repairs project too can be a good idea
for Africa later too but let us all start with the
DIY Solar. Ten our our youths visited an electrician
today in our city center to check if he knows more
about the DIY Solar and can install it? He gave us a
rendez-vous for next week after the new year
celebration, so we will go there to visit his workshop
and discuss more on DIY Solar battery with him.
These ACTWID Youths were led by Fidele Toulepit.
Fidele is our marketing and advertising manager. He
has a B.A degree in marketing [his email is

registered too as an independent thinker,Killo Shang
Blaise that you already had him registered last time

this work voluntarily while struggling too to study

ICTs technology and Eugene [ email is
