Micheal Ssemwogerere and Teddy Kyazze Nalubowa, Making Ethanol Fuel and Cookers in Communities
85% of household energy in Uganda is attributed to wood and charcoal use with inefficient stoves, creating toxic fumes that damage ones health and kill approximately 14,000 people every year. Outside of the country’s capital in Gayaza, Micheal Ssemwogerere and Teddy Kyazze Nalubowa have created the Making Ethanol Fuel and Cookers in Communities project as a way to introduce clean burning, renewable fuel to families. Micheal and Teddy have connected with women’s groups who brew the local alcohol to make ethanol, which in turn gets it on the market in a timely manner while providing economic income to the women.
