Why it is important  

More than 95% percent of people living in the rural areas surrounding Musoma use wood or charcoal for cooking. Cooking over an open fire uses a huge amount of firewood, creates plumes of smoke and is very dangerous for children. Children regularly suffer burns from accidents related to hazardous open fires. Women usually walk to collect firewood which also has risks associated with it. 


How it makes a difference

The fuel-efficient stove can reduce the amount of wood consumption by 65%, reducing the amount of trees cut down. It produces less smoke and the cooking pots are stable, the fire enclosed preventing children from being burnt. 


These stoves really do change the lives of the women and children, providing a safer environment and reducing the burden on women of collecting firewood. 


Mama Enoch "I have had my stove for 6 months and I love it because it is safer for my children, it produces less smoke and I use less firewood."
