As the holiday season is upon us, we at Chikumbuso are preparing to celebrate with family and friends, as well as the entire Chikumbuso community - whether here in Zambia or across the sea in the U.S.. We are so grateful for all the folks who make up our circle of love and count our blessings that each of you is in our lives.
During this busy cooking season, our thoughts are with the grandmothers of our project, who continue to cook on open flame in smoky rooms. Fuel efficient stoves are not only safer for them and their grandchildren, they also reduce smoke inhalation, asthma, and other respiratory diseases. In addition, they are much cheaper for the grandmothers to maintain, as they only need small amounts of wood. We hope, in time, to provide each and every one of them with the means to cook healthy (in more ways than one) meals for their grandchildren.
Please consider supporting this project during this time - a time when being reminded of love, community, and meals with family is so important. Blessings to each of you.
