The history of solar cooking in VenezuelaEdit

Two small-scale efforts on the part of individuals to promote solar cooking are reported as having occurred in Venezuela. Carlos Manuel Mujica of Urban Fundalara demonstrates cookers and teaches others how to use them. Similarly, Flor Isabel Tur of the Centre por Desarrollo Y Ambiente (Development and Environment) uses cookers and holds workshops to teach others.

Currently, NORVEX, an ecological cooperative, is starting a solar cooking program for poor families in Venezuela. Financial assistance comes from the German embassy in Caracas. Families are taught how to construct and use the cooker, and how to pasteurize water. Seventy cookers had been made at the time of writing the news report, with most new solar users residing in rural areas where water is often contaminated. No information on future plans is available.
