Date: July 2006 (Presented at the Solar Cookers and Food Processing International Conference in Granada, Spain)
Abstract: The use of CooKits was demonstrated in a refugee camp, and was readily accepted by the refugee women that took part in the early demonstrations and in the training to use them. The demonstrations were extended to the women of the neighbouring village. A project is operational to train refugees to manufacture this simple solar cooker and to train all refugee women, who so wish, in its use. Some of the reasons for the acceptance of the method are indicated.
