Unintended Consequences

The Acholi women in Uganda have embraced solar cooking.  They have done so because it saves them time and money.  But the unanticipated and often overlooked consequences are even greater.  They are helping to protect the environment.  Each woman that uses a solar cooker every day the sun shines saves up to one ton of firewood each year.  And their children are less at risk of being burned because they're are less open fires.  And  because sunlight is free fuel, families can solar cook more nutritrious, less expensive foods like dried beans and legumes that normally require long cooking times and consume large amounts of fuel.  They can also pasterurize their drinking water using only the sun and use the saved "fuel money" to buy food.  Your support has made this possible.  Thank you!
