Iridimi cookers in camp

Twenty-one Darfur refugee women earn income by making a simple solar cooker, called the CooKit. They participate in a project to expand access to solar cookers for the refugees and improve the lives of at least 400 families (about 2,500 individuals) at Iridimi refugee camp in Chad. Made from cardboard and aluminum foil, a hand-assembled CooKit lasts 6-9 months with regular use despite the windy conditions. Each CooKit cooks tasty nutritious meals with a few hours of free, renewable sunshine and largely eliminates risky trips outside the camp to gather fuelwood.

The project is sponsored by Jewish World Watch in partnership with Solar Cookers International (SCI) and the KoZon Foundation.
