Solar Food Dehydrator: A Sustainable and Safe Alternative

Description

This project empowers women in coastal São Tomé and Príncipe by providing solar food dehydrators and training in their use. This innovative solution combats food waste, transforming seasonal surpluses of fruits, vegetables, and herbs into shelf-stable, nutritious products. Dehydration is a simple, low-cost preservation method that locks in nutrients and extends shelf-life, reducing spoilage and boosting potential income for female entrepreneurs. This project will distribute 50 dehydrators and train 50 women across several districts, fostering a sustainable approach to food security and economic opportunity for coastal communities.
