The drought in the country is acute resulting in poverty; deforestation and land degradation, where the poor people of Eritrean villages are living without access to electricity. The stove benefits are tremendous such as consuming less wood, smokeless room, save time and labor, reduce carbon emission, decrease respiratory disease of the residents, less fire danger and eventually improve standard of living of the villagers of Eritrea. The improved stove's impact is mostly for the environment.


By disseminating the improved stoves via local material and skill, work opportunity is created, income generation increases, health conditions, standard of living of household and life expectancy improve.

Long-Term Impact

About more than 100 million people in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Sudan will benefit from the project and it will combat desertification, afforestation and land degradation as well as avoiding smoke-borne diseases which affect millions of poor people.
