“I like the fact that solar cookers eliminate the need for youngsters to go out foraging for firewood, missing school and endangering their safety, that there are less burns and less unhealthy air to breathe without indoor fires and the lessening of smoke in the air outside. The water pasteurization is a cool element, too. I plan to go on supporting SCI in the future.” 
– Jean Kindleberger, SCI Supporter
