ORGANIZATION: Solar Cookers International

  • 6 people are interested

Solar thermal cooking is an appropriate technology for renewable energy, and it is greatly needed since almost 3 Billion people still cook over open fires with wood, charcoal or animal dung. Solar cooking is a
healthy, safe, and sustainable solution.

Solar Cookers International is the non-profit leading the solar cooking sector since 1987. We need your help doing economic research and analysis on the impacts of solar cooking. We will share the economic
benefits of solar cooking (in addition to the environmental, health, and social benefits) with country and community leaders. This will show people the value of investing in solar cooking and the economic return
on it, for individuals, households, countries, and our planet.

This would make a great research project, paper, or thesis. Please contact us at specialprojects@solarcookers.org or + 1-916-445-4499 if you are interested. Your efforts will immediately start benefiting the world.

Mission Statement

The mission of Solar Cookers International (SCI) is to improve human health, economic well-being, women’s empowerment, and the environment by promoting climate-friendly solar cooking for vulnerable populations worldwide. We work to solve the problem of inadequate household energy facing nearly 2.4 billion people on our planet. Since human health, quality of life, and environments are affected by cooking fuel choices, we offer a solution to the difficult choices nearly half of all families make every day: whether to buy fuel or to buy food and other family needs. The sun’s free energy is a viable solution for all who live where the sun shines. Solar cooker technology is a sustainable and environmentally responsible tool that helps families fight poverty and disease, and changes women’s and children’s lives for the better. Join us in empowering more women to improve their lives by learning how to cook with the sun.
