Around 99% of households in Omilling rural settlement still rely on the unprocessed biomass for cooking.

Around 99% of households in Omilling rural settlement still rely on the unprocessed biomass fuels (wood, dung, crop residues) for their daily cooking and heating. In these households, the fuel is burned indoors on open fires for poorly functioning stoves often with no chimney. According to the World Health Organization (WHO)  the greatest Global burden of air population exposure occurs indoors in rural communities.

The effects of smoke exposure have acute lower respiratory infections and cause lung disease. Eye problems are also frequently reported. Over the last 2 years, the goal of the project aimed at improving the household environment and to substitute traditional open fires for cooking with fuel-efficient stoves.

The clay fuel–efficient wood stove will provide employment and also ripple incomes for the local women after training in the production techniques and marketing skills. Two women whom we trained before are operating their fuel-efficient wood clay stoves as a business.

We thank our supporters for their contributions that helped Hope Ofiriha trains women  From the CASH you donated we are adding two new women to receive training. By the end of 2011 we hope to train 500 women to produce 5000 fuel-efficient clay stoves!

We are very glad you are with us. Hope Ofiriha looks to partner with you until this project achieves her goals. In the next three months a new update will be posted to tell how the impacts of your contributions are making the difference along the way as the project is progressing.
