Cold in Africa?

Our Grandmothers are really benefiting from their new stoves.  It gets surprisingly cold here in Zambia.  The construction of the homes in Ng'ombe don't offer much protection either, basic block construction, no insulation and a metal roof.  The rocket stoves create a bit of warmth on a cold evening.  The temperatures dip down to the low 40Fs.  One can imagine how that cold could really cut through an old woman.  After cooking her meal for her family, our grandmothers can feel cozy around the remaining warmth from the firebox without the dirt and smoke from firewood or charcoal.
