Dear donor,

We would like to thank you again for supporting our projects. We are pleased to report that thanks to all your generous support the new cookstove is ready.

Over the past weeks the focus of the local team has been to produce the new and cheaper cookstove and prepare a major roll out of our new scheme to promote their distribution which we are planning for the coming months.

As the previous model bears heat, and it's easy to maintain, its energy source is always biomass, but the new model is much more marketable. It is produced from the local people with materials of Mozambican origin, therefore it reduces the need for imported material. This helps a lot in the production time (not having to import the materials already processed from abroad, the transport / customs clearance / payment of customs duties) and in the cost of production.

The design will not change, as you can see from the photos, but the advantages will be considerable. The production costs reduced by 40% will make the new cookstove accessible to many more families, therefore much less use of coal and use of a clean cooking system for an increasing number of people.

We are getting closer and closer to our goal, and with your help we hope to achieve the goal in the shortest possible time.

To conclude, we would like to inform you about a new project of our association, given the serious health situation we are experiencing today. With the new project we would like to provide support to Mozambican families in order to help them and do everything possible to avoid the spread of covid-19. Check out our project on

Hope you will join us in supporting both projects. Every dollar counts

Thanks for your help

Over the past few months we have been working on a cheaper and more efficient cookstove, which we will launch in 2020. The new model would reduce the reliance on imported material making it at least 40 per cent cheaper and more easily to manufacture locally. Its new design will allow to improve its efficiency by around 50 per cent. This new model.will allow us to widen the impact of our revolutionary cookstove and allow more people to benefit from clean cooking solutions. We thank all the donors who have made ir possible and for all those who will continue to support us at this critical juncture. Please allow us to wish you all happy holidays and ask you to make this festive season special by lending a contribution to lives of poor communities in Mozambique.

Dear donnor,


This time we decided to step back and do a different approach. 

Since, we are celebrating the sustainability month we have decided to promote and create awarness regarding the issues related to the environemnt and the benefits of the Gas stove in the life of each individual part of the community.

These awarness are beeing done in the markets, suburbs of the capital of mozambique Maputo and we intend to spread and go further.

We have partner with the FDA- Agrarian Investment Fund, to support us in terms of logistics in order to reach more people.

The baseline concept is to teach the community about deforestation and mitigation plans; Prejudice of open fire and of smoke inside the houses.

The awarness will be done for the next 3 months, whereby we expect to reach over 2 000 people. We will also partecipate in an Fair- FACIM to both expose the products and train the people on how to use it.


Sincerely yours,

Dear Donors,


Thanks to a Mozambican IP registered technology, the clean cookstove solution liberates women from dependency from charcoal, reduce health hazard for their kids and deforestation, while producing natural fertilizer.

Tio Mario Gas stove is being promoted and made accessible to more people. Our colleagues are committed to doing a marketing campaign and raising awareness among Mozambican communities so that more people can understand the benefits bought by the gas stove to their lives. In the past weeks, our team has visited some informal markets in the surroundings of Maputo.

We still need your support. As the african proverb says: "If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far go together".

We will keep you posted on the marvelous outcomes from these actions. 


With Regards,

Marta is a 30 year old woman from Matalane, a village in Marracuene, Mozambique. Marta is a mother of four small children and a leader in her community. She always thrives to do better and more for the people in her village. Marta, like many women in rural Mozambique, is responsible for daily meals; from breakfast to supper. Marta sometimes struggled to provide her family with the most important meal of the day because she could not afford to buy coal.

She was also raised in such a way that nature and its conservation are very important matters. However, she still obliged to go and find wood in the foresty to be able to cook the meals for her family, an action that is not always possible. 'I can now use this stove to cook meals for my children and boil water so that they can take a bath and go to school clean and fed every morning. I want my children to grow up playing outside, picking fruits from the trees just like I did. For this I know we cannot keep burning coal and wood as the forestries are getting further away from our homes. We can just use waste. This changed my; I am very happy'. Thanks to 'projecto fogao' Marta can now provide her family with all the necessary meals without causing damages to the environment.

Marta and her family were not the only ones to benefit from this project. Due to the strong sense of community is Matalane and Marta's strong sense of leadership the project was extended to 18 more families. Marta was very happy to explain to her community how to assemble and use the stove. Projecto fogao was also implemented in Zimpeto, Mantimane and Maputo city where more than twenty families have benefited.
