How would you use an extra 2-4 hours each day? How does Solar Bora contribute to UN SDG#1 No Poverty?
The Solar Bora Next Generation Solar Household System not only help the families move from wood or charcoal cooking into clean cooking by electricity. It will also free up a significant amount of time each day for the women.
From the Solar Bora Pilot Project in Mali this has been seen to be 2-4 hours per day. Naturally, this is generally time for the women, as they are mainly responsible for these tasks in the household today.
These 2-4 hours are a combination of the time it normally takes to collect wood each day (if not illegal) and that the temperature management of the cooking is much easier with an induction cooker compared to a traditional stove.
Combine this with a spare set of energy in the SolarBora system that allows for some further activities.
At Solar Bora we believe that this time will be used by the women to build micro enterprises, to create new climate resilient income that will improve the lives of the family and the local population.
What do you believe would be the best usage of the extra time and energy?
