Solar food dehydrator
12-07-2014 22:05 - Generic
The project was donated by PS76 Onlus of Genoa. CSpace made the dehydrator manually with wood and recycled plastic bottles, and then tried it out in Italy with food products that are found in Africa (bananas, tomatoes, apples, fish, etc.) - the results obtained were excellent. The next missions to be carried out in Guinea Bissau by CSpace will include on-site training courses to enable the local people to become autonomous in making the dryer themselves for family use.

On July 3rd, 2014, two women from Ivory Coast and one from Cameroon attended a training session organised by CSpace. These women will now be able to teach other operators how to make the nutritional paste in their respective countries of origin.
The same women were also shown the food dehydrator project, donated by PS76 Onlus of Genoa, a highly appreciated method of food preservation that is extremely easy to use.

In fact, millions of famili...
