Mission and Vision


1) To develop economically sustainable energy solutions for a cleaner environment.

2) The Foundation wants to increase the number of cookers in slum areas to one per every 50-70 households, which can contain as many as 20 members per household.


The Community Cooker Foundation works to transform environmental waste into energy for improved livelihoods and healthier communities. This waste-to-energy technology has three complementary functions:
1) To address sanitation, health and aesthetic issues associated with the growing mounds of rubbish in informal settlements.
2) To provide communities with alternatives to charcoal, firewood and paraffin for cooking meals and boiling water.
3) To act as a platform from which Community Based Organizations (CBO’s) and institutions can run cost effective income generating activities.
