Fatima Jibrell, Somali environmental activist and Goldman Environmental Prize winne2002 started Sun Fire Cooking with Jim Lindsay, former Australian diplomat, in October 2004.
Sun Fire Cooking envisions everyone in Somalia working to protect and reclaim the land for future generations. We see a future when environmentally friendly solar energy replaces charcoal for cooking.
To help reduce the devastating cutting of trees for fuel, Sun Fire Cooking mobilizes people in Somalia and east Africa to switch from charcoal to solar for cooking.
We will revolutionize the culture of cooking in east Africa by promoting solar cooking.
