SHE works through private entities, governments and local NGOs to establish the sustainable distribution of solar ovens. SHE provides training of local instructors who in turn train others – the “cascade” effect. Base line surveys are conducted before and evaluations undertaken after distribution to measure success.

SHE provides technical and, on occasion, financial support for these projects to insure their success.
Evaluation of Results
To measure the permanence of a distribution project an evaluation of the solar cooker is conducted. This evaluation includes site visits, record keeping on incidence of use and refresher training when needed. For a report on evaluations of previous projects click here.
