Think Namibia!

"Although solar cooking is something that I heard about in passing often, I never really thought solar cooking was efficient or that it could compare to other forms of cooking such as using electrical stoves, but after using the solar cooking devices at NaDEET, I now realize that solar cooking is actually the best choice to go with. Solar cooking is the simplest, safest and most convenient way to cook food without consuming fuels and it also does not release any gases that contribute to greenhouse gases- solar is a clean source of energy." - Ndinelao Landi Moses

As one of a 30 member delegation that participated in our week-long solar cooking and renewable energy programme at the Centre, Landi was also the lucky winner of the solar oven. The course sponsored by the Hanns Seidel Foundation and National Youth Council was aimed for young adults who are motivated to take action for a sustainble Namibia. Read Landi's full report on her experience.
