African Cooking Stove Programme - Kenya
The project is located in Kenya and provides locally made domestic fuel-efficient cooking stoves to rural households within the Mathira East, Eldoret East and Keiyo Districts. The new stoves reduce the amount of wood fuel needed to cook, thereby reducing carbon emissions.
The new fuel efficient stoves replace the traditional “3-stone fires”, which are thermally inefficient and results in incomplete combustion and the production of large amounts of smoke and indoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution has been linked to a range of health problems such as acute respiratory infections (ARI) in children, chronic obstructive lung diseases (such as chronic bronchitis and asthma), lung cancer and neonatal complications.
The stoves provide the families with a cleaner, cheaper and easier way of cooking, due to the reduction of wood that is need. As well as reducing carbon emission it is a community lead project, with all the stoves are built in Kenya. The improved stoves reduce indoor air pollution and reduces cooking and wood collection time; allowing more time on other household tasks, as well as schooling and supervising children.
