Innovations Towards Energy Saving

I am grateful to "western cluster"for what they've done to to the youth in my hood, as far as being self employed i concerned. About some time last year, youths were handled in a hall being taught on how to construct this new energy saving stove component. It had been invented by the organization and thus being taught to us to make them and sell to people.We were taught on many ranging from Portable Jiko Kisasa, Kisasa liner, mobile rocket stove (mud) Bricks rocket stove and many more. We perfected the art and we are now making it big in this business as people are buying more of our product. this is great.
