Solar Cookers to Vanuatu
Help Vanuatu cook in a clean environment with solar cookers. Currently they are cooking with an open fire in their homes causing bad health.
On March 13th 2015 Cyclone Pam hit Vanuatu and the smaller islands. This devastated the region and caused widespread food and water shortages.
The NiVan people are steadily rebuilding their lives again. Aside from these troubles they also have other ongoing issues which, with your help can be easily addressed.
Local cooking methods include cooking with an open flame in their un-vented kitchens. This has and continues to cause widespread fatal respiratory problems and cancer. Many have not yet realised the link and are unaware of other options.
SUNFLAIR SOLAR COOKER WILL HELP THE REGION BY:
- Enabling locals to sterilise their own water for safe drinking with out the use of consumable materials or extra time and energy continually sourcing clean water and fuel.
- Offering an alternative cooking fuel to wood with no ongoing cost of any kind. Much healthier than an open fire inside the home with no ventilation or flume.
- The ability to efficiently dehydrate fruits and vegetables to preserve food stocks.
- The opportunity for locals to start a micro business by sundrying and selling local produce before it gets spoilt such as mangoes and other local fruits.
With your donations each family will receive a Deluxe Sunflair Solar Cooker with the full cookware set.
eBRIGHT's involvement (page creator)
eBRIGHT is teaming up with Fruit of the Pacific to make this happen.
Fruit of the Pacific is a charitable trust dedicated to educating, mentoring and inspiring Pacific migrants that work short term in NZ horticultural industries. Founded in 2009 with a focus on both individual and community development they have since made clear positive impacts on the communities with the health and well being of the NiVan people.
eBRIGHT is working along side the organisation Fruit of the Pacific to send Sunflair Solar Cookers over to Vanuatu as cost effectively as possible.
For every 10 Sunflair solar cookers purchased eBRIGHT will send a Deluxe Sunflair Solar Oven kit to Vanuatu for free.
On top of this we wanted to open the door for others to donate such as yourselves. We will subsidize the unit cost so we can send as many over as possible and will be arranging the delivery. Thank you.
This is Dorosday Watson, She works for the department of Women's affairs, Government of the republic of Vanuatu.
She saw me cooking in the Sunflair and took a real interest. I left one with her so she can take it to women's meetings. She's a very inspirational motivated lady who is looking to get women into parliament for the first time ever in Vanuatu (currently there are none!).
The more NiVans can save their food stocks, have healthy snacks without paying for them the better. We hope this will then move forward onto cooking too, this way women won't be sacrificing their health by cooking inside.
Thanks again for your generous donations.
