Disabled Technicians of Uganda had produced over 100 solar cookers as of April 2005. They seek the donation of a computer, software, printer and modem to help them expand their work. The group has been implementing solar cooking and solar food drying projects for disabled and disadvantaged people for many years in Uganda. DTU’s most recent initiative targets displaced families, living in camps, who use bio-fuels as their primary source of energy. DTU is interested in program planning and project development collaborations with SCI.
