TWP Laments Passing of Long-time Friend Ken Goyer

TWP laments the passing of long-time friend and stove-expert Ken Goyer, who passed away this last weekend of cancer.  Ken has worked tirelessly promoting Rocket Stove technology around the world, and he will be remembered and missed by many.  Apart from helping TWP test lightweight ceramics for our Honduras project in 2005, Ken founded the Aid Africa project in Northern Uganda, which helped bring fuel-efficient stoves, health programs, and clean water to thousands of Achioli communities.  We send our condolences to Ken’s immediate family in Oregon, and to all those who were touched by Ken’s kindness in the many corners of the world where he worked.
