Village elderly registering to get cookstove
In June 2018, improved cook stove manufactured by Envirofit India was distributed to 340 households affected by April 2015 Nepal earthquake. These cook stove consumes less firewood, emits very less smoke, has high efficiency and are modular (can be easily carried from one place to another). The distributed model has been certified by the Government of Nepal.
These households were previously using traditional cookstove, which consumed much firewood, emitted much smoke thereby contributing towards indoor air pollution and affecting family health (especially those of women).
The cook stove recipients were from ward number 1 (Bhirkot village) located in Tamakoshi Rural Municipality, Dolakha. ECCA team coordinated with the local ward office for identifying these households.
The ward office president was thankful to ECCA and Global Giving Foundation for providing the cook stoves. He shared that out of total 1140 households in Bhirkot village, ECCA had distributed improved cook stove to total 540 households (in 2 lots). The remaining 600 households are yet to be provided improved cook stove, for which he further requested support.
We thank you for your continued support.
