Letter From the Executive Director and Board President

What a year! A global health crisis, inequities abound, and a burning environment. These global challenges require global solutions.

With approximately 3 billion people still cooking over open fires and about 1 million people dying every year from pneumonia from cooking-fire smoke, the time to act is now. Solar cooking reduces risks such as air pollution, deforestation, and respiratory disease. It increases energy independence, food stability, health, and safety.

Our mission is to improve human and environmental health by supporting the expansion of effective carbon-free solar cooking in world regions of greatest need.

This is especially important during times of crisis and to reduce future health and environmental risks. With your support, solar cooking eliminates indoor pollution, reducing overall outdoor 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
