What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In Mansehra, more than 70% families living in rural areas cook their meals over open wood fires. These families don't have access to alternative fuel sources.Most of women use stoves made of local material. These open wood fires create serious problems. Smoke from these fires is a major cause of acute respiratory infections.Inefficient open wood fires require a great deal of fuel,contributing to deforestation.Considering this the need for provision of woodfuel saving stove & plant was felt.
How will this project solve this problem?
Each of our fuel-efficient stoves saves carbon dioxide emissions which will help our global environment.The stoves also benefit whole community by reducing deforestation, which in turn can help prevent erosion and landslides & protect water supplies.
