The Lazola Initiative for the Promotion of Solar Cooking in Paderborn is a non-profit organization. Members work voluntarily. Their main goal is the development and dissemination of the Lazola cooker.
The Lazola-Initiative has developed a number of hand-built box-cooker models, which have been tested and improved many times in practice.
The Lazola Initiative supports NGOs and private initiatives with diverse know-how in the implementation of LAZOLA construction projects in developing countries; But it does not carry out any projects itself. However, it arranges experts for the performance of on-site construction courses and also offers construction courses in Germany.
The most important technical base for the manufacturing of the Lazola cooker is a very detailed, innovative video-supported construction manual with many explanatory video clips.
A short video trailer, showing only a few excerpts, provides a first impression. It is shown that with very simple production aids even unpracticed workers will be able to learn and execute all necessary skills.
