News

  • March 2016: Diallo Abdoulaye Sadio reports that the Association Des Volontaires Guineens Pour l' Environnement has been promoting solar thermal cooking for twenty-two years in Guinea and other other areas of West Africa. He feels by training young people with sustainable employment opportunities is helping to fight against the appeal of terrorist organizations. He is hoping to attract the attention of an NGO willing to help with their efforts.
  • August 2000: Volontaires Guineens pour l’Environnement reports they have been working on solar cooker production and promotion in Guinea since 1995. “For every one cooker that is bought, we always make sure that we fabricate one for a poor family in the rural village,” writes Diallo Abdoulaye Sadio. “By this system, we have now put in place about 250 cookers just for the village population.” Mr. Diallo reports that the Voluntaires have a solar cooking training staff but have trouble obtaining the necessary materials for building cookers.

History

A long lasting effort in Guinea is found in the work of a solar pioneer in that country, Diallo Abdoulaye Sadio, who has spearheaded an effort which has produced hundreds of solar cookers, both box type and panels. The organization, called Volontaires Guineens pour l’Environnement, has made and sold cookers on a plan that permits the free distribution of one cooker, to a family in a rural village, for each one they are able to sell. Occasionally they have trouble locating materials, but have a staff well trained in the training of others, and in the producing of cookers.
