Campaign launch! Support Solar Bakery Pioneers in East Africa

Posted 17 June 2022 by Eva Wissenz.

Help Joan, Hashimu and Allen to inspire their local communities by harnessing the power of the sun and creating sustainable bakeries!

Feeding their community without polluting or deforesting is what Joan, Hashimu and Allen choose to do in order to fight the intensity and acceleration of climate change and global warming caused by human activities.

With your help, we want to support each solarpreneur to acquire a Lytefire solar oven, the material and ingredients needed to start in their town in September-October 2022.

Joan is a female entrepreneur in Kenya. Hashimu is a young cook in Tanzania. Allen is a pensioner baker but ooops, we shouldn’t say pensioner because he is more active than you and me!

What do they all have in common? They all live in East Africa, they face heavy daily challenges connected to the reality of global warming, they want to make a change and they LOVE the Lytefire solar oven.

Thank you for supporting them as much as you can on the campaign page and by sharing on social media!
