- 2010: Jorge Seidi is a citizen of Guinea-Bissau in western Africa. Economic conditions are quite difficult there, and Jorge has been doing what he can to promote solar cooking in the area. He has experimented with information he has gathered from this website, to make a few solar panel cookers from local materials he has been able to salvage. According to Seidi, 90% of the country relies on charcoal as the primary cooking fuel. He would like to work with a local youth group to be able to make more cookers, encouraged by similar projects underway in Somalia and Chad.
