The R20, together with their local partner, CIRID (Centre Indépendant de Recherche et d’Initiatives pour le Dialogue) are implementing a solar bakery project in Rutegama, Gitega, Burundi. CIRID implemented the original bakery in 2006; since then 44 women beneficiaries and other vulnerable groups were trained in bread production and bakery management. As the current functioning of the bakery is not environmentally sustainable, this pilot project aims to transition the original wood-fired bakery into a solar-powered bakery through the use of solar ovens.
This Solar Bakery Project is financed by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, the Austrian Development Cooperation and the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The project implementation is being overseen by the Energy and Environment Partnership of Southern and East Africa (EEP S&EA).
