G-BAT Energy Saving Technologies Mayuge – Youth Empowerment Through Energy Saving Technologies

G-BAT Energy Saving Technologies Mayuge is a stove making company, empowering the youth with skills of making energy-saving stoves to create employment for the growing majority of unemployed youth and school drop outs in Mayuge district, Uganda. It was initiated by Batambuze Girisomu. The growing number of unemployed youth are running to the forests around Mayuge to cut trees and create cooking charcoal for income, which has caused drought in the area. Because of this, G-BAT Energy Saving Technologies decided to mobilize youth and train them in making energy saving stoves and briquette charcoals as a means through which they can create employment.
