SCI supports the Nepalese organization FOST (Foundation for Sustainable Technologies) to distribute solar cookers to those in need and train people how to make and use solar cookers.
For example, SCl donors helped provide a solar cooking workshop for 57 people.

Many participants would not be able to afford to purchase solar cookers, or the supplies to make them, on their own.
Participants made their own solar cookers and were able to save 37% of their fuel expenses by solar cooking. Some participants started their own solar cooking restaurants to support their families.
FOST also taught over 5,000 students from 15 schools, Rotary Club members, and blind community members about solar cooking from June through October, 2015.
