Basket cooker promotion

During the April school holidays Mugo went to Nairobi to get blanket waste. He took it to Isiolo by public transport and handed it over to the officials at the Isiolo Cooperative Development Office. With the chairman, the treasurer and the secretaries he discussed strategies to promote basket cookers. They agreed that one of the Gaketha women would come to train members of local women´s groups how to make baskets into `fireless cookers´.

Another group that is going to be trained is that of MKICDO board member Ivonne. They received blanket waste as well as baskets. In addition, they were given 20,000 Kenya Shillings (approx. 200 Euro) from MKICDO´s newly established revolving fund for the women to start table banking.
