Villager Sun Oven : Improving Safety for Women & Children
The use of the VILLAGER SUN OVEN solar ovens can dramatically improve the quality of life for women and girls by removing the need to gather firewood in remote locations.
Less Wood Gathering is Safer for People in Remote Communities
In many deforested communities, the gathering of wood is no longer a simple matter. As the supply of wood decreases, women must travel great distances to find wood. Many women in developing countries must spend several hours each day collecting fuel-wood. As women and girls travel increasing distances gathering firewood, they are forced to expose themselves to greater risk of beatings and rape.
Once wood is gathered, women spend many hours stirring food. Food cooked in a SUN OVEN® does not require stirring, freeing up time for income generation and other more productive activities.
