Our team decided unanimously: if there might be a first price for the most innovative improved cookstove this would be it.
It is enjoyable to witness over the last 12 months how a simple model of a utilitarian improved cookstove transformed into an object for artistic expression. Our workshops are always community-wide events of two or three days. Spending this time together with your neighbors, seeing what they are building might just foster your creativity.
The team has been teaching improved cookstove building, bio charcoal making and reforestation for over a year now and already included 10 communities. Their preliminary evaluation showed that people are most interested in building their own improved cookstove and learning about bioremediation against plant pathogens and insects that do not require purchased pesticides. One of our teachers' other passions, besides having developed the improved cookstove model, is natural insect and pest control and he and his expertise are in high demand. As our founder put it: “I think he really enjoys to apply his knowledge out in the field with the villagers and not just teaching about it in a classroom.”
The other photographs are of improved cookstoves being used in rural kitchens.
