Kasiisi Project students have been invited to be participants in an adventure in transatlantic collaboration to research clean burning, fuel efficient stoves. This exciting project, the brainchild of Rich Lehrer of Brookwood School, MA is bringing together children from schools in Rwanda, Brazil, Uganda and the USA through Skype, e-mail, video and photography. During face-to-face discussion each group will share their differing experiences of the challenges of using fuel efficiently. The Kyanyawara children, chief wood collectors in their families, will be able to talk about the daily challenge of finding enough cooking fuel . The final building and testing of the stoves will take place on three different continents on Saturday May 19th.
If you would like to follow the progress of the team from Kyanyawara Primary School along with that of their colleagues from the 4 other schools take a look at the link at Clean Stove Project.
