Summary

In Nepal, 64% of households use wood in open-fire method for cooking which is a serious health risk affecting mostly women and children. Moreover, it is one of the major factors of burn and fire hazard; deforestation; and daily burden to the women and girls as they have to spend long hours for firewood collection and cooking. The Clean Cookstove Project will provide 250 clean cookstoves providing a smoke free home while using much less wood for women and their families to address this issue.

Challenge

According to WHO, over 7500 Nepalese women and children die annually due to illnesses related to indoor air pollution. Cooking in an open-fire also causes deforestation as more wood is required to cook; creates extra burden for women and girls; and increases the risk of burns and fire. This project will help 250 women and their families who are currently cooking over an open-fire from the rural village of Nepal to receive clean cookstoves.

Solution

The Cookstove Project will improve the lives of 250 women and their families by helping them gain access to efficient clean cookstoves that use less wood and improve the air quality at homes.

Long-Term Impact

The project will eliminate the preventable diseases and deaths caused by indoor air pollution of 250 women and their families. It will also reduce the daily burden of women and girls as they will spend less time collecting firewood and cooking as well as reducing the smoke and improving their overall health. Furthermore, the clean cookstoves will have a positive impact on climate change as it helps in conservation of forests.
