From November till today we have built other 10 ovens, thanks to your precious help: we’ve got 1500 $!
Every time we build a new one in a house, all the family tries to help our local workers while working. In this way they can also better understand how to do the maintenance afterwards. When the oven in finished it’s always a special day: the family cooks the engera bread for everybody and offers it to the workers and to their neighbors. In this way a solidarity network is growing in the villages.
From the 16th of February till the 7th of March this project is participating to the Renewable Energy Match Funding Campaign on Global Giving, so we hope that many of you will choose us to help these poor Eritrean families to have a new ecological oven at home! Together we can make the difference!
The projectis going well. In the past threemonths, thanksto newdonors contributions, more ovens were built: five morefamiliescan nowcookin the house and feel safe.

The project "Ecological Ovens" is going well, since February, we built another 2 ovens for two Eritrean families. Throughout today we got to 10 ecological ovens made. The importance of this project, which improves the quality of life and the power of Eritrean families, is also evident from the conferences held at Expo where they talked about ecological ovens Mogogo and their benefits. An estimated 50 million people daily use the simple traditional clay ovens to cook Injera, a spongy cake of mixed grain cooked on a large flat black clay under a metal cover that for its shape resembles a hat. The innovation of the "Ecological Ovens" notable advantages: the walls of the oven are thermally insulated, the combustion chamber is ceramic, closed and protected, it provides for a system of introduction of combustion air and discharge of the ashes and the pipe of uptake of combustion fumes. This reduces the time and, not least, the damage to health by channeling the fumes from burning.
We’ll keep you posted on the development of the project, thanks for your support!
The project "Ecological ovens" stems from the need to improve the effectiveness of the traditional oven, the Eritrean mogogo, making it sustainable and safe for the health of people and animals. The energy performance of the traditional mogogo is less then 10% (it's estimated that it consumes 50% of the Eritrean wood) and there is no fumes collection system, causing respiratory and eyes diseases. The oven is essential in the Eritrean houses as there is cooked the engera, the daily food in Eritrea.
Actually, we have collected 1.240$. Thanks to your support, from December to today we have built 8 Eritrean mogogo (150$ each), but our goal is to build 30 ecological ovens. We trust in your support to build the other 22 mogogo and to improve the quality of life of Eritrean villages.
