We have been working with communities in Southern Africa to enhance energy and water security and are currently working with the community of Msobomvu in the Easten Cape.
We have made a short film highlighting one of the workshops held in Msobomvu, which subsequently resulted in a community decision to focus specifically on cooking and lighting needs for the immediate term.
The first stage of rolling-out the chosen solutions took place at the end of November 2012. Highly efficient cook-stoves and Wonderbags were delivered by Project 90 staff and volunteers. An innovative solar home lighting kit (that also charges mobile phones) has been designed by Grey Green Engineering, and will be assembled and installed by the villagers themselves in January 2013.
Stay tuned for more news on Msobomvu and Project 90’s Energy & Water Secure Communities Programme …
