Meeting the Charcoal Challenge
Somalia Cooks with Solar
A unique and visionary contribution
to saving the fragile environment and the pastoral way of life in Somalia
No one has ever made a film based on Somali pastoral life in the visually stunning Somali landscape.
No one has ever brought to people throughout the world the reality of environmental degradation due to charcoal production that is threatening the continued existence of the Somali pastoral way of life.
No one has made a film based on Somali pastoral culture and music with Somalis as the protagonists.
No one has had the vision, the daring, the expertise and the network of contacts to even dream of making such a film in pastoral Somalia.
Sun Fire Cooking with their network of people committed to the environment and Somali pastoralism can dream of making a compelling and beautiful short film that will entertain as well as educate people throughout the world.
Here are the core visionaries:
We can make this innovative film for only US$30,000 due to dedicated volunteers and in-kind donations. With your help we can make a difference for Somalia, Africa and the world.
Any donation is welcome. Donations of US$100 or more will receive a DVD of the video. JOIN US TODAY! Send your checks payable to Sun Fire Cooking to Jim Lindsay 651 Oakland Ave. Apt 2E, Oakland CA 94611 USA. All donors will be listed in the film credits!
