From cow manure to comforters. Saving time and trees with a biodigester gives time for making comforters.
Mudombo used to spend many hours each week collecting wood that she needed to cook her family’s dinner over an open fire. Dead wood is increasingly hard to find because of deforestation, so she and her friends walked long distances into remote and sometimes dangerous areas of the forest to find fuel.
But in 2022, Mennonite Central Committee’s partner Score Against Poverty (SCORE) helped Mudombo and her husband, Elnathan Mboweni, get an underground biodigester on their farm in Joseph Village. Now, every day, one of them mixes cow manure with water and pours the mixture into the digester, which turns the manure into gas energy.
