Liquefied gas for cleaner environment and education

Hi Fredrick :-) Well done for trying to bring cleaner cooking methods to your community, every step forward is great :-) But I just wanted to ask if you'd considered also stocking solar cookers? Maybe a cheaper more accessible one like the CooKit? But any solar cooker would be a great addition to offer people :-)

The Clean Cooking Forum is Nov 5-7 in Nairobi... Which I highly recommend going to if possible :-)

Here's a couple of links from Solar Cookers International if its helpful:

No affiliation by the way :-) Just trying to let more people know about how wonderful & cheap solar cooking can be... Its so bloody good for the environment :-)

All the best with everything Fredrick :-) I contributed a little to your loan either way.
Warm regards, Emma.
