Elena Steger Kassama and Amadou Kassama are implementing solar cooking in west Africa in The Gambia. They were the founders of Solar Project Gambia. After that beginning, an association was formed and the name changed to Solar Association Tiloo. The Project is registered as a local NGO in The Gambia.
Our slogan is: COOK WITH THE POWER OF THE SUN & SAVE MONEY AND FIRE WOOD!
