Discuss and research solar cookers and other green technologies

Status: Finished
Step: 
3

The village of Nabitende depend mostly on trees for their livelihood, feeding and energy. The trees are used for practically everything in their day to day lives; Charcoal, firewood, shelters, food etc.

Because of this high dependency on trees, a lot of trees are cut and none planted in replacement. This is causing severe depletion of the trees and if something is not done, the people of Nabitende face deforestation and subsequent loss of their major source of income.

All cooking is done on open wood and charcoal fires. Therefore solar cookers and other green technologies are needed.

I am attaching the great research done by neighbour Angela already on solar cookers.

  • It is better to show one skilled handyman or handywoman or carpenter how to make usable solar cookers, than to demonstrate the concept to 300 people who won't be able to make use of the concept because they have no solar cookers and no one to teach them how to use one.
  • It is better to make sure that one new solar cook learns all that is needed to make good use of a solar cooker and to gain practice and confidence in using it, than to give brief lessons to ten solar cooks who might later give up on solar cooking at the first obstacle or setback.
