Stove efficiency

We continue to work with Indigenous communities in Central America, many of which have benefited from receiving energy efficient stoves thanks to this project. We have been checking the wood consumption of the stoves we have built so far and it is considerably less than before, as we thought.

The situation for poor families is particularly tough at the moment as food is very scarce, so the less time spent collecting firewood, more can be spent trying to work to get more food, or working in the fields.

Energy efficient stoves make a huge difference to the living conditions for these families with cleaner air in the home and free up more time for supporting the family.
