Walt Jenkins is Chairman of the Temple Solar Project which was started in 1997 by Rotary district 6450 to help people to empower themselves through self-sustaining, solar micro-bakeries. Rotary Clubs donate Villager Sun Ovens to selected community groups. He has an arrangement with Drexel University to audit usage of the cookers.
The Temple Solar Project finances, purchases, delivers and sets in operation large baking and cooking sun ovens in world-wide locations where natural fuels are depleted and populations are undernourished. The large Villager Sun Ovens are the basis for self-supporting community bakeries to replace outdated and environmentally harmful methods of cooking and to provide new, healthy means for feeding the citizens in deprived areas of underdeveloped nations. The Temple Solar Project, a humanitarian service of Rotary District 6450, has brought the means for cooking and baking without fossil fuels to numerous communities in foreign lands where natural resources have been depleted or are at great risk
