Tribals, COVID19, poverty and solar cooking

SHAPE in collaboration with the Pollution Control Board of India conducted a training programme for tribal women on 07.07.2020. Using common household items, the community women learned how to make solar cookers.

Many people are unemployed because of #COVID19 and tribals are not exceptions. Due to pandemic-poverty, they cannot afford basic necessities like gas and electricity. Consequently, these underprivileged tribal families depend on carbon-based fuels like wood and coal to cook. Burning such fuels causes numerous environmental and health-related complications.

Solar cooking is the answer to all of these issues. Solar cookers are easy to make and free to use. These cookers use sunlight as fuel and cause no environmental and health problems. Over fifty ultra-poor people will not worry about gas bills now, thanks to our initiative.

Help us extend this project to other poor people.
