3-D Cooking:Rocket Stoves, Hay Boxes and Solar Cookers The Solution Rises Every Morning Rwanda, Cally Alles, Wilfred & Marie Pimental, Rotary International, Solar Cooker Rwanda Association

Wilfred & Marie are 80 years old but travel regularly to teach solar cooking in Rwanda. They have a partner in Cally Alles, the director of Sorwathe tea factory. Cally has organized the people into local associations and hosts trainings at the factory. Cooking with the sun is simple but people need convincing. Carboard and aluminum? Just a few hours to cook beans? No stirring and no burning?
It's useless to tell a starving man to grow corn and "Don't cut the trees" won't do a thing for the environment when there's no alternative. Solar cooking is the solution in Central Africa where there's plenty of sun and little firewood. But there's another benefit. In the countryside there are few villages. People live in scattered clay houses miles apart. Solar cooking associations give them a reason to get together. In fact, they were so inspired by Cally's work on their behalf that they wrote a song for him and performed it when we arrived.

Suncookers Kenya
March 29, 2007 This film has been extremely well recieved in recent film festivals including the Woodstock Film Festival, and will be screened in the upcoming Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival. This new film shot in Kenya in 2006, follows Margaret Owino, of Solar Cookers International in Nairobi, as she teaches refugees how to use solar cooking. Deforestation in Kenya has made the firewood and charcoal, that the refugees use to cook, incredibly scarce. The use of solar cooking helps prevent further deforestation and is cheaper than the limited and costly firewood. As SuNews in Kenya reports, "For millions of people living in dry, fuel scarce regions, solar cookers can literally save lives." This inspirational new DVD features recipes to use in solar cooking, as well as information to create your own solar cooker. Produced and Directed by Catherine Scott Executive Producer DeeDee Halleck featuring: Margaret Owino of Solar Cookers International in Nairobi, Elizabeth Auma Oranga, Pastor Alloyes Ogollo, and Shadrack Alumai Duma
