45 Solar Cookers for Luqie Tibetan Village

Book cover
A contribution from Mr. Sewell and Ms. de Beaufort of 5,075.64 RMB was supplemented by a local contribution of 2,250.00 RMB for a total of 7,325.64RMB. Project funds purchased 45 solar cookers for 45 households (264 residents) in Luqie Tibetan Village, which has a 95% Tibetan population. It is located east of Heying Town, the capital of Guide County, Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province, and 155 km from Xining City, the capital of Qinghai Province. This area is particularly poor and impoverished. Villagers are farmers and their main source of income is the sale of rapeseed and wheat, supplemented by the sale of medicinal herbs. The average annual per person income is 100-150 RMB. Data collected before and after the project suggest that the number of times of collecting fuel (dung, wood) has been reduced from 60 times per month to two; the number of times of collecting fuel in winter has been reduced from 40 times to 5; a sack/basket of fuel that lasted 2 days now lasts 6 days, which suggests that the amount of fuel burnt by a household in one year has decreased from 6,228 kg to 2,129 kg; the amount of non-fuel collecting time per day has increased 4-5 hours; and the amount of cash spent on coal has decreased by about 270 RMB annually.
