Title: Solar cooker dissemination initiative in Kenya
In 2003 Solar Cookers International began an initiative aimed at introducing solar cookers and solar water pasteurization in Nyakach, western Kenya. Solar cookers address a prime need of half the world’s population: energy for daily cooking. In the Sunny Solutions project, SCI aimed to expand opportunities for local entrepreneurs, mainly women, to save money by using and selling solar cookers and solar cooked products. The unattended cooking has freed time for other income-generating activities and self improvement. To date 4000 units have been sold in the area.
