This picture means the world to me.
We have installed this week a first solar oven in Alagaya refugee’s camp in Sudan, where about 220 000 people are living.
The conditions of this project have been extremely challenging and it’s not fully completed yet but the good will and determination of all partners have allowed the solar baking to start with success this week with the Lytefire 5 solar oven.
Working in refugee camps is very difficult, it’s a world per se. Hopefully this seed will grow and be of great use to the beneficiaries to progressively start to run their solar bakery. We’ll see in the coming weeks.
I have been waiting for that moment since day 1 when I heard about the very first solar concentrator in Cuba in 2007. Relieving a bit the burden from vulnerable people is what makes we wake up every day, no matter what.
Thank you Lytefire team for all the courage, love and persistence. Thank you Rami and Sam, Plan International and Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) for the great opportunity.
