SUPO

SUPO (Foundation for Urban Projects in Developing Countries, in Dutch: Stichting voor Urbane Projecten in Ontwikkelingslanden) is a non-profit organization with current projects that supports the development of small parks in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. In these parks (ECOPARCs) jatropha trees (biofuel source) and fruit trees are planted to "green" the neighborhood. The parks can serve as educational areas for solar cooking training. Educational and promotional activities are mainly focused on management and improvement of the urban environment.

In the past (2014?) SUPO conducted a solar cooking program in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The aims of this program, PESGO (Programme Energie Solaire Grand-Ouaga), were to

  • Introduce solar energy in urban households by training women in using the CooKit.
  • Educate children (13 to 16 years) in hygiene, health and solar cooking to create a new generation of cooks, who are familiar with sustainable cooking.

In PESGO, it was understood that the CooKit could not replace firewood entirely. SUPO explored the use of jatropha oil as a complement to the CooKit. The jatropha plant is drought tolerant and its fruits contain oil which can be used as fuel substitute. The combination of the CooKit and jatropha oil seems to have high potential in urban kitchens of West Africa.
