Camily Wedende was excited for us to visit his solar cooker storefront in Eldoret, Kenya last month. He eagerly texted our host and driver, Dennis Kiprop, to find out when we would get there.
After a long trek down crowded roads, Boyd Cothran, my husband and SIA Board member, Dennis Kiprop, and I finally made it there. Even though the sky threatened rain, there was enough solar energy to “hard boil” an egg in one of Camily’s solar cookers!
Camily proudly showed us around his shop, telling us of grateful customers and interested potential customers. Solar cookers greatly reduce the need to search for firewood and eliminate the need for expensive cooking fuel, features that are especially appealing for rural Kenyans and internal refugees.
