Title: Evaluation of Three Solar Cooker Projects in Burkina Faso/West Africa
Author: Monika Hermann-Sanou
Date: July 2006 (presented at the Granada solar cooking conference)
The Papillon was developed from the SK 14 and its performance is 50 % higher.
Two different target groups got involved in the project: low budget families and families with a steady income. There were different payment conditions for these two groups. Nearly all families acquired a gas bottle, a gas cooker and a thermos basket together with the SC.
The objective of the evaluation was to find out the frequency of use of the solar cookers (SC), the use of other fuel, the economies made by using the SC. Finally we wanted to identify the factors that contribute to the use of the SC´s and the factors that inhibit it. Important factors are the family size, the family income, its living place, cooking times, number of meals cooked per day, the motivation of the cook.
Keywords: SC Bamako and Papillon, frequency of use, cooking process, facilitating and inhibiting factors.
