The benefits of the stoves we have already built are showing instant dividends, with far fewer complaints of chest infections, as there is no longer indoor-smoke inhalation from the previous brick fires. The fuel efficient stoves we have built have also allowed the families to spend less money on firewood. Fuel efficient stoves also provide a greater quantity of food in a short period.
We still need to build a further 100 stoves in the area and at $250 each and thanks to generous donations; we hopefully will accomplish this in 2013/14. These stoves are incredible efficient to the environment but also to the communities.
