"Hey, it works! The sun is cooking our food." Schoolchildren from Windhoek are discovering first hand that solar cooking really works and that the food is delicious. For NaDEET Centre it is modus operandi every week. For each week long programme we cook every lunch and dinner on our solar cookers as part of our "we practice what we teach" philosophy.
