Shimoni Improved Cook Stoves(ID: 103000000002102)

Account Holder
This project will involve the distribution of 1984 energy efficient stoves in the Shimoni community, in Kenya. This community is one of the poorest in the region being also largely overpopulated, with most of its people suffering from unemployment, poor health and poverty. The lifestyles of the locals within this community often impact negatively on the environment, as for instance regarding deforestation. These stoves will utilise the efficient rocket technology. They will be manufactured, distributed and installed by local people under the training and supervision of co2balance Kenya Ltd. Initial testing has shown these stoves to be more than 50% more efficient than traditional models as well as it reduces the indoor smoke about 80%. These stoves will be using less firewood and emitting less smoke.
