Letter From the Executive Director and Board President

It’s incredible how forest fires, happening thousands of miles away, impact our air quality, health, and ability to go outside or enjoy our lives. Now imagine how smoke like that affects someone cooking over an open fire every day. 

It’s heartbreaking to think that 1 in 3 people worldwide, mostly women and children, are living this way, and about 3.2 million people are dying yearly from illnesses attributable to household air pollution. The time to act is now. Solar cooking reduces risks such as indoor air pollution, deforestation, and respiratory disease. It increases energy independence, food stability, health, and safety. 

With your support, solar cooking eliminates indoor air pollution, reducing overall outdoor air pollution. This improves the air that we all breathe, and for this, we truly thank our supporters.


Caitlyn Hughes, Executive Director, and Dr. Shishpal Rawat, Board President
