We brought 2 donated "SUN FLAIR" solar cookers, though we'd had no experience with solar cooking whatsoever. We took a chance, and placed pots of cut vegetables in at11AM. By 3:30PM, viola! a delicious cooked food! The women laughed with amazement!
They and their families, particularly the youngest and eldest, sometimes suffer from the smoke of cooking fires filling their lungs and harming their eyes.
Solar cooking also saves time and plant life. On sunny days there's no need to walk to find vegetation to cut.
On a global level, solar cookers can help clean the smoke made by 3 billion+ cooking fires created around the world each day.
Currently, the village has only the 2 cookers, which they share. But our goal for 2020/2021 - if we can raise the funds - is to purchase materials for the community to build their own cookers, and possibly sell them to other villages as a small business opportunity. Stay tuned...
