Production of the Cooker in Workshops

can be done without electricity by using simple cutting, bending and hole punching machines.  They are available from EG Solar.  Tools are also included, for example files and rulers.  Only one size of bolt is used, but are of different lengths.  The cooker’s frame is built from easy to work with pieces of flat and round steel.  Highly reflective aluminium panels for the parabolic dish which are already pre-cut and holed can be ordered from us (see ).

The costs of an SK14 in a country which has fuel shortages are returned in just a few months, depending upon the cost of fuel.  Afterward, money is saved which can be used for better quality foods, schooling, etc.  Were firewood previously gathered (which may not have had any costs associated with it), the situation for women and children is still significantly improved when a solar cooker is used: free time increases, energy used to work can now be invested somewhere else, and an improved level of health is secured.  Ideally, children will have time to go to school and women will have time for  their household or for other training.
