Revision as of 19:41, April 20, 2013

Dominique Dutoit, who's home is in France, has been using the CooKit panel cooker to introduce solar cooking to communities in Madagascar. He has been trying to find ways to make the cooker even more affordable to local residents. One option is to find an alternative material other than the typical corrugated cardboard, something that is available or can be made locally.

He began teaching solar cooking in Madagascar in 2013, and has taught 500 people to use the cooker, and has subsidized the distribution of 20 cookers.
