Kenya Village Project
The Kenya Village Project documents the inspiring development story of two communities in eastern Kenya: Loodariak and Kithuia. Both have experienced transformation through technology and education that are changing the future of children and adults, but especially for girls and women.
The power of the sun in a deceptively simple piece of technology – the Solar Cooker – has changed the lives of Kithuia villagers in rural Kenya. Theirs is a story of economic, environmental and educational transformation. Loodariak villagers in Kenya are beginning to introduce cooking with the sun into their community.
