PROGRAMS


International Program Development

In partnership with local agencies, Solar Cookers International (SCI) has enabled thousands of families in multiple countries to cook food and pasteurize water with simple solar cookers. To ensure long-term project viability and access to affordable cookers, SCI works to incorporate solar cookers into local economies through establishment of independent solar cooker businesses run mostly by women.

Local participants are involved in project development from day one. SCI and its partners meet with community leaders and women's representatives for extensive discussions, question and answer sessions, and demonstrations of solar cooking's applicability to local foods. Project details are shaped in these weeks of meetings and exchange. During implementation, end-user interviews and other monitoring techniques allow SCI to adapt procedures as necessary to best meet community needs.

SCI has managed or co-managed projects in Kenya and Zimbabwe, and plans to expand to other countries in the coming years.
