The APEMC was created by engineering students in Poitiers. Its objective is to accompany and support the development of the Wolonkoto village in Burkina Faso. In 2011, the APEMC installed a water pump fed by photovoltaic panels, also a water tower and its network of distribution allowing direct access to water. Recently a school and an extension of the solar center were constructed by the village locals, so the APEMC wishes to help the constructions by optimizing the infrastructures with electrification thanks to a photovoltaic installment.
