Caring for Mother Earth: providing solar ovens in the Amazon

In 2015, Christian Aid embarked on a three-year project with the Church of Scotland Guild to provide solar ovens to indigenous communities in the Bolivian Amazon.

The Caring for Mother Earth project provided solar ovens to four communities; Bella Altura and Capaina, north of La Paz, and Bermeo and Nueva Betania in Beni.

Esther Guarayuco's family was one of the first to receive a solar oven in the Bolivian Amazon. The Caring for Mother Earth project has now delivered 260 ovens to 20 communities in the region.
