A reflection of Bhutanese refugees caught in an aluminium dish during solar cooking training. All the entrants were given a solar cooker to take home with them after the event and the winner received a pressure cooker. With the financial help of the Dutch Council for Refugees, a total of 6,300 solar cookers will be distributed amongst the Bhutanese refugees living in the region. The solar cookers consist of a reflective, aluminium, parabolic-shaped device that concentrates the sun's rays onto cooking pots placed on a frame in the centre of the dish. The dish has to be adjusted to the new position of the sun around every 10 minutes. It takes about 55 minutes to prepare a cooked meal on a sunny day and it is hoped that using the solar cookers will alleviate pressure on resources and reduce kerosene consumption by 75%.
