The Solar Cooker Project for North Africa focuses on training Christian women to cook with the sun and begin to use this interaction as a way to teach their Muslim neighbors. Disciple making means spending time interacting with each other and solar cooking provides that venue to teach, cook, laugh and talk about life. In time, the women begin to change their worldview and believe new things about the transforming power of the SON.

Solar cooking is a simple technology that takes the free energy of the sun and focuses it to cook a meal with the use of fire. In many parts of the world it is difficult to change people's hearts to accept the Good News of the Gospel. It is necessary for them to experience it and interact with it. They must see it is actually beneficial for their lives to receive it and pass it on to others. When people see the cookers working, taste the cooked food, and pass it on to their friends, they are essentially experiencing a type of "conversion" to believe it is actually possible for them to use a resource in a way never before utilized. If enough funds are raised, World Partners staff Steve and Sheila Harrigan will travel to the Middle East to help another World Partners secure staff member teach local individuals in the Middle East how to create solar cookers. A gift of $30 will help one Christian woman in North Africa begin this journey to connect with and disciple her Muslim neighbor.
