Olive Cake initiative- IBDA' Youth Gaza

The Olive Cake initiative during the implementation of their activities, which is a socio-economic initiative based on generating electricity from olive peat, to convert the waste of olive presses into a clean source of electrical energy by taking advantage of the high heat resulting from combustion to generate electricity, that it is sufficient to charge a mobile phone or provide lighting. The initiative also recently won the best project in the Hult Prize competition and will participate in the competition globally as the best pilot project. It is also worth noting, that Olive Cake emerged from the youth group "Al Dif' fi Habat Al Zaytoon", (Warmth in the Grains of Olives), whose idea is to make molds of olive peat to produce thermal energy in order to use it for heating. Therefore Olive Cake is an integral initiative with other youth community initiatives. We value the efforts and cooperation of the other youth initiatives that work towards finding solutions for community problems and how they collaborate to fulfill these needs.
