-- Sun Ovens, an Illinois-based company, joins forces with the Rotary Club of Naperville to help people in Malawi, a country in Africa, use solar ovens as a primary means of cooking their food.
Malawi has one of the highest rates of AIDS in the continent. This greatly affected the availability of jobs, making it one of the poorest countries in Africa. Sun Ovens and the Rotary Club of Naperville saw that, given the situation the country is in right now, they are the ones who will benefit the most from having access to safer and healthier food.
Sun Ovens and the Rotary Club of Naperville saw that the sun ovens they brought were perfect in slow cooking the “seven grains” diet given to people living with AIDS. This is a nutritious blend of seven wholesome grains that, when softened, provide patients the best nutrition without being too heavy or harsh on their digestion.
Prior to the introduction of solar ovens, people would use a huge amount of fuel like charcoal or firewood to soften these grains. Now, all they have to do is to harness the power of the sun to cook their food. This minimizes their exposure to cooking fumes and the need to gather fuel.
