NWI "Flexi Biogas" Project in Ilkilorit - Kenya (3)

New World International is partnering with Dominic to develop proposals that would see Flexi Biogas devices installed in our clinics to power refrigerators, used to store volatile vaccinations. Due to the remoteness of some clinics, power failures (typically gas bottles running out) consequently leave communities without vaccinations for several months. Since these communities would be able to produce Flexi Biogas independently, this would no longer be a problem.

 

The first installment/pilot has been at Ilkilorit high school, where ICROSS have just opened a new health clinic serving the surrounding Maasai communities. The teachers at the school now use their Biogas up to 5 times a day to cook and make tea and are delighted with how easy it is to use. They no longer have any need for charcoal or their old charcoal Jiko (charcoal burning stove) and the schoolchildren are happy to bring the required bucket of dung each day for their teachers.
