Announcing our Cooperation with Jansen PrimeSteps Foundation

Posted 22 November 2021 by Urs Riggenbach.

We are proud to announce the start of our cooperation with the Swiss based Jansen PrimeSteps Foundation. With the support and advise of the PrimeSteps team we will equip and train entrepreneurs with Lytefire solar ovens across different locations in Burkina, with a focus on women’s groups and cooperatives.

Jannsen PrimeSteps is a Swiss non-profit foundation supporting solutions to improve people’s quality of life. Across sectors and countries, they identify the best solutions and provide know-how and financial support to scale-up projects with a large impact potential. We are really excited and honored by their support!

This project allows us to target specifically small women groups, who are not involved in bigger institutions or supported by larger organizations. By empowering these groups with the Lytefire technology and with the skills to run their own solar business, they can create their own income, become more independent, reduce their use of fossil fuels, protect their health and improve their quality of life - with Lytefire and solar entrepreneurship. We look forward to update on the project’s progress.
