In 2009, SOS Energie Burkina (SOSEB) began teaching solar cooking, and making solar cookers in Burkina Faso . They have taught over 180 people to solar cook, and have distributed over 300 solar cookers through 2011. The cookers were assembled in Burkina Faso with local materials. They were also SEED Award Winners for a grant to promote the use of biomass briquettes. Their main task is to search for alternative energy to wood and coal, in order to fight against deforestation and protecting the environment. The non-profit organization has over 204 members, including 20 volunteers. They are seeking technical and financial partners to help achieve their objectives.
