Eliesheriff Joseph is from Hinche Haiti, and studied at the Université Notre-Dame d'Haïti. He teaches STEM program hands-on classes in Hinche with solar cooking projects, and is looking to build a system of solar cooking lending programs within the country.

  • December 2021: Continuing his steady stream of projects, Eliesheriff Joseph recently completed a workshop on building the 'Beast' Copenhagen solar cooker. Relatively simple to build, the Copenhagen design has been proven to be an effective solar panel cooker. It appears they were able build seven cookers for use in the Hinche community. The project came about with assistance from Mary Buchenic and Jennifer Gasser of the Solar Education Project. Last year, Eliesheriff partnered with students at Youngstown State University in Ohio, USA and the Solar Education Project to run tests on the large home made Copenhagen oven. Before he could test it, he had to learn how to build it! Solar Education Project guided him through the process and provided funds for materials and time.
