Even as a non-profit and tax-exempt organisation we still need to cover our costs.
Solar cookers and tunnel driers should remain affordable to people in Gambia. In addition, we value fair work conditions for our employees in Gambia. As such, we are dependent on financial support from others.

Carpentry Workshop

Soon the construction of the carpentry workshop is coming to an end. The workers and the constructor are aiming at finishing the work by the end of January 2017 and every day they are doing their level best to reach the aimed target within the next four to six weeks.

Our goal is to manufacture solar cookers and driers and later to sell the self-made solar items on the project ground in Latriya so that we omit unnecessary transport costs and have the possibility of producing as ecological and environmentally-friendly as possible. In future, we would like to offer the opportunity to young people who are willing to work to receive an instruction and training in carpentry prospectively from our long-time carpenter, Sidou Marrow.
