Kukula Solar wiped my tears the day they brought me one of their cook stoves. Previously, I had been cooking from a fireplace where we used lots of firewood. The smoke that emanated from the fireplace affected my health and that of my children. My eyes were sore and my children developed cough. The usage of the fireplace also made me spend lots of money on firewood and more time on cooking. This left me with little time for my business and income loss. With Kukula Solar’s intervention, I now do not have to spend my little money on firewood. I also do not use the whole day to cook. My children are now attending school through the savings I have made. Please donate to empower Kukula Solar to distribute clean cook stoves to boost the health and incomes of women and their households!

 

Thank you

Every day, families living in rural communities of Africa frequent forests to fetch firewood for their cooking. This results in the cutting of trees and leads to land degradation, and deforestation and also affects our environment.

We have been working with rural communities in Zambia's Eastern Province to protect our forest by promoting the use of improved clean cookstoves that saves our trees, money, and also time.

To date, over 10,000 clean cookstoves have been distributed, thanks to you our donors, and supporters who make this a reality.

We invite you to consider donating to our project so that we reach more people with these life-changing products and continue to save our forests as we protect our planet.

With deforestation continuing to affect the way of life for many families in rural communities, The improved clean cookstoves being distributed by Kukula Solar is helping families to save money, improve their health and also save their time.

School-going girls now are spending more time studying than looking for firewood and women now can spend time improving their business more than cooking at a smokey firewood 3 stone stove.

 

Together with our partners, we have distributed 350 clean cookstoves to families that needed them the most.

 

We thank you all our donors for making this possible!

 

We look forward to continue working with you in this year.

 

Thanks. Zikomo.
