Fatma heard about the cookstoves from a Solar Sister development associate and decided to try one out.

Now with the new cook stove the same load of wood can last up to three weeks of cooking. “With the extra time I can develop my business. I also have more time for the family. I can monitor my children’s studies. All of this makes for a happier family and a better relationship with my husband. Since using the clean cookstove no one has been sick or gone to the hospital due to flu.” Fatma sees herself helping her community because she no longer sees the people that she has sold cookstoves have red eyes, coughing or sick like they used to be. She has been able to help with the school fees for her children, purchase items for the home and a cow. “What makes me wake up early every morning and take my cookstoves and go to my business is to be able to take my family to school as well as to get food and other family needs.”

857-94843 - The original lighthouse at Cape Spear in Newfoundland sits dark, with the new lighthouse nearby.

Nikon D5, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 lens @ 14mm and f/2.8. Six shots with the ISO between 12,800 and 25,600, as I was playing around with the camera to get a feel for its performance, stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for Mac.
