Orka stoves ready for shipping in SkilMech's warehouse

400 75-litre Prakti Orka institutional stoves were shipped to Haiti on April 19, 2011 from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.  These stoves will be used by the United Nations World Food Programme in their school feeding program in rural and peri-urban areas in Haiti.  100 of these stoves are currently in use, each stove feeding 150 children per meal.  The fuel used for these stoves are low-density, hand-made briquettes made from waste materials, eliminating the need to use scarce and expensive resources such as wood or charcoal.
