Title: Expansion of Solar Cooking Micro-Enterprise Initiative in Kenya
Increasingly, products for social and environmental benefit are being sold in the general marketplace following awareness creation and promotion by non-governmental and governmental agencies. Since 1995, Solar Cookers International (Eastern Africa) has empowered over 20,000 families to cook with a clean energy option, solar energy. To further extend broad access to solar cookers in sunny areas of eastern Africa experiencing severe firewood shortages, SCI has planted the first seeds for a business-based approach to solar cooker dissemination in the Nyakach area of Kenya. SCI seeks assistance from Visions to expand this work to all areas of Nyakach and indeed the whole of Kenya.
