500 Prakti-Orka stoves have been distributed to Haitian schools by ILF-Haiti and the World Food Program. After a year of use here is what our local partner and Haitian cooks say about it:
“One of the signature products of Prakti that has received high praise in Haiti is the Prakti Orka. Prakti Orka is a hybrid stove being able to use wood and briquettes made from recycled material and paper waste products such as cardboard. Briquettes existed in Haiti for a long time but without a proper technology that could utilize their usage.” ï¿½ Prakti’s implementation partner ILF
“The kitchen used to be unbearably hot and we would enter it only to stir the food from time to time. Working in a hot kitchen is like working in hell. And now working in a cool kitchen feels like heaven. Cook using an Orka stove at College Christophe (Port-au-Prince, Haiti)
