Over 1000 stoves provided in the last five months
Women Are Enjoying Cooking With Their Clean Stoves
As a result of the generosity of an anonymous donor, we added a new service to our micro loans program last May. In addition to ongoing micro loans program activities, clean cooking stoves were provided to vulnerable women impacted by HIV and AIDS. Over the last four winter months, 1000 clean cooking stoves and education was provided to vulnerable women living in impoverished communities in Zambia. The women love their new stoves as these keep them warm, cook food faster, and save money on fuel.
Why is this stove better: These stoves are built using patented air regulation, technology, minimize CO, PM, and greenhouse gas emissions leading to better health, savings, climate change mitigation, and everyday convenience.
Next Steps: Our plan is to provide 10,000 stoves and education on proper use to benefit 50,000 residents in the next six months. We are encouraging women to use these stoves for income generation by cooking food to sell.
The provision of stoves is in addition to the ongoing provision of loans to start businesses, business training and monitoring provided to 400 women enrolled in this program.
Thanks for giving vulnerable women an opportunity to become successful entrepreneurs.
