The project is to assemble and distribute 2,000 solar cookers to families in Afghanistan during 2006. One thousand will be the SOS [[SPORT]] Solar Ovens and 1,000 will be panel cookers. The cookers will be subsidized so that most families will be able to afford either. The materials for making the ovens will be imported and Afghans will be trained to assemble and demonstrate solar cooking.
