CREEC’s two bioenergy assistants, a volunteer and the public relations officer visited Noah’s Ark Children’s Ministry and donated 6 MWOTO stoves to the home on Wednesday 27th March. Dorothy Lsoto, Sheila Nantambi, Lauren Harrof and Rehema Namukose respectively, visited this established community and home to over 200 children. The stoves were donated with the aim of promoting the use of improved cookstoves among the people of this community.
This donation is also a part of CREEC’s corporate social responsibility drive aimed at promoting clean, efficient modern types of cooking and enhance access to modern types of energy through sensitization. During this a give-away, cooks were also trained in MWOTO stove functionality basics through a cooking demonstration.
Peter Buitendijk, one of the founder and director of this great institution that includes a vocational wing was grateful to CREEC for donating the energy saving stoves. He is also interested in having the students learning hands on skills of how to make the stove and some of the fuels like briquettes. He is looking forward to working with CREEC in many other aspects of capacity building in renewable energy for the children of institution.
Noah’s Ark Children’s Ministry is non-profit organisation located about 3kms off the Mukono-Kayunga road in Mukono District. Some of the renewable energy technologies this institution uses include improved institutional stoves, biogas, and solar thermal energy.
CREEC hopes to expand further its corporate social responsibility project to as many institutions as possible with an objective of promoting easy ways of energy conservation among the people. They include use of improved cookstoves, promoting the use of alternative cheap methods of lighting like use of solar lamps among schools and also embracing green energy like biogas.
