First Zwelihle Demo at RDP

29th June 2011

The first demo at the RDP was a hit with the 9 Zwelihle community women and men!!!  who attended.  They were introduced to the Wonderbox by very enthusiastic presenter Nokuthula Florentina. They couldn’t believe how simple and within their means it would be to make their own boxes from recycle materials and also that the rice and lentils could cook in 10 minutes in this wonder box!!!!. Florentina also demonstrated the making of Energy Balls. The audience asked when there will be another demo for others to see. We have promised to post this information up at the RDP Soup Kitchen.


Stove on the go

Anton Boshoff from Stanford set up his Rocket Stove and there was much discussion about how to make these. Everyone was very pleased with the incredible warmth is generated on so little fuel.
More demos are definitely required so we will be investigating means of raising some funds to continue as well as to train more presenters.
