Low Tech/High Impact Cookstoves for Moroccan Women

by Near East Foundation (NEF)

Last week, field staff began distributing 40 cook stoves and bake ovens to 20 families in two villages - Ait Aafan and Tamzrite. Distribution was followed after a session on the personal and environmental consequences of using biomass fuel and demonstrating installation techniques.

Four additional training sessions on the use of the cook stoves will take place in February, in coordination with a public awareness campaign to better sensitize the community as a whole on the use of cook stoves and bake ovens. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by early March 2008.
