Kenyan community cooking

In Nairobi, a new community project uses the trash around the neighborhood to fuel a communal cooker. The Community Cooker relies upon community members bringing their waste to feed the fire, in turn making the area cleaner, and provides a space for cooking meals, without the expense of buying charcoal or other materials for a fire to cook on at home. The project was shortlisted for an Energy, Waste and Recycling award at the 2008 World Architecture Festival.
