Solar Cooking in Kenya ?
Here's a few reasons why :
- Each group of items in the photo costs 30 Kenyan Shillings (£0.21) as does the pile of charcoal shown. By using a CooKit or other solar cooker, people can buy food instead of fuel.
- Can be built from materials as simple as cardboard, glue, aluminum foil, scrap-metal, and non-toxic black spray-paint
- Fun, clean, convenient, economical, non-polluting
- Uses FREE solar energy
- Can bake, steam, roast, simmer even PASTEURIZE
- Slow, gentle cooking retains more nutrients, giving a wonderful fresh flavour.
- For those that must gather firewood instead of purchasing wood or charcoal, women and girls usually, the time saved can now be used to earn money building and re-selling cookers, even baking cakes for example, or simply returning to school for a better education.
- Less firewood is needed so solar cooking is saving the forests - Forests mean rain, crops, livestock… more money.
- Lack of smoke and soot means improved lung health for cooks and children.
- Benefits of improved health by enabling pasteurization of milk and water.
