Abstract: Information is given on the use of a simple solar cooker, the CooKit, by physically handicapped women in Bamako, capital of the Republic of Mali. They are all members of AMAFH (Association Malienne des Femmes Handicapées), a well organized association. In total 140 of these women, many of them polio victims, followed one of the four 2-day CooKit trainings. At the end of the course all participants received a CooKit with pot. They like to use the CooKit and after some months they expressed their wish to obtain a second one. When this paper went to the press, preparations had started to organize a CooKit training for 18 blind members, at their request.
