Solar award for Radio Pacis

BBM-project partner RADIO PACIS in Arua, Uganda wins solar award. Moreover, the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, visits the radio station.

BBM and RADIO PACIS have a long history together. The BBM built the radio station in the north-west of Uganda with the help of Know-How and also constantly expands it.

The radio station, planned by the BBM, was part of two gratifying events:

Firstly, RADIO PACIS won the well-known EUROSOLAR award in the category “One World Cooperation” for the innovative solar-power-system, which reduced the operational energy costs drastically and has a role model effect for the region.

Further on, the Ugandan president Museveni visited the technical part of RADIO PACIS and visibly impressed.
