Y.E.S. Uganda stove project

Y.E.S. (Youth Encouragement Services, Inc.) Uganda is a service organization based in Fort Portal, Uganda that was founded by a former resident of Upcountry Maui, Carol Adams. Our club has a history of supporting Y.E.S. Uganda and back in 2021 Carol was a speaker at one of our meetings (virtually). After the meeting we inquired what more our club could do to help the orphanage portion of the project. We tossed around a few ideas until Carol suggested solar aided stoves.
In much of rural Africa, deforestation is a major issue due to people needing wood to burn either directly for cooking or for making charcoal. A solar aided stove would reduce the amount of wood needed to cook food for the orphanage. It would also create an opportunity to teach the children valuable cooking skills that could carry over to better jobs as they got older.
We were so happy to be able to arrange to have one of these solar aided stoves installed at the orphanage. Later in the year we were able to arrange a second stove.
