The stove project continues to provide energy-efficient stoves for families in the communities. The children's attendance has to be good for the family to receive a stove, though once they have the stove, the benefits are immediate, with the smoke now funneled through a chimney and up to 75% less firewood used, which obviously cuts down the time the children are needed to collect firewood, and also helps the environment with less deforestation.
With more donations this project can continue to grow, proving the help that is needed for the all of the families in the community. Not only can this project greatly improve the health of the entire community, it can also act as a long term income generator – it certainly has great potential! Before this project began, the people wanted to use less wood to cook but they couldn’t afford the stoves so they are in a lose-lose cycle, they either had to cut down more trees or buy more wood to cook in an unhealthy, uneconomic manner. Luckily this problem is improving dramatically through all of the generous donations!
