Godfrey's Solar Dryer
Godfrey Katamba, a Senior 3 student at CSH sells snacks to other students from his canteen. He's more than just an entrepreneur and definitely more than a teenager with an after-school job. At a young age he lost both of his parents and two of his siblings to AIDS. Godfrey’s canteen allows him to support himself as well as his brothers and sisters.
Some of Godfrey’s most popular items are sweet bananas. However, they don’t always get eaten in time and he has to throw them away. That is until now. Godfrey has developed a solar fruit dryer that uses the sun to preserve his left over fruit for quite some time.
Below are plans for a solar dryer like Godfrey’s.
