Solar Cooking Campaign for Grassroots was created by Alzubair Saiyed and Virendra Dhakhada in Gujarat, India with the goal to "disseminate simple, efficient, and portable solar cooker design of that can be easily built at home with inexpensive and readily available materials."

In their workshops, Solar Cooking Campaign for Grassroots uses the Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light as well as a selection of funnel cookers, box cookers, and evacuated tube cookers. By the end of 2017, the group organized over 50 workshops for NGOs, schools, colleges, exhibits, rural, and tribal areas.
