Did you know that smoke from cooking fires kills more people each year than malaria?

Solar cooking offers a simple, affordable cooking alternative.

Solar Cookers International (SCI) saves and changes lives worldwide with solar cooking technology. Using free sunshine as fuel for cooking and water pasteurization has far-ranging positive effects for families and the environment. Since 1987, SCI has spread solar cooking technology and awareness worldwide, particularly in areas with plentiful sunshine and diminishing sources of cooking fuel. SCI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Sacramento, California, USA.
