First solar bakery running at Rape Hurts Foundation

Posted 9 December 2022 by Eva Wissenz.

After a successful first training for a very nice group at Rape Hurts Foundation, the participants have been able to start their solar baking production with great success.



All together, Augustine Olowo, Allen Odongo and Sam Rodrigues have organized a great training.



Hellen Lunkuse W. Tanyinga, founder of RHF, says they are selling like crazy. Four people are involved in continuing the bakery and for now they are baking 200 buns each day, and selling easily to nearby shops and people who know them.

One can read on the wall of Rape Hurts Foundation: "A world in which human and children realize their full Human Rights, Health, Social-Economic and Civic potential." That is what we are willing to achieve as well, one solar oven at the time (and more and more actually!).



This project starts really well and the team can’t wait to continue after the holidays with more training’s.

This is made possible because of the close cooperation of RHF and ’s SELF, Solar Electric Light Fund, a US based NGO financing this project.

And a big thank you to Joan for organizing the shipping brilliantly, and to Jared, Josef and the workers in Kenya for building all this!
