Samwel Nyapola Nyongesa – Improved stoves for renewable Energy and Good Health

Date grant awarded: 01/16/2018

Improved stoves for renewable energy project managed by Charles Juma involves the making of improved cook stoves and campaigns for reduced use of wood fuel and less labor requirement among women. The demand for wood fuel in Kakamega county is increasing as forests are being deforested in search of fire wood , construction materials, charcoal and furniture. These stoves will address the deforestation of the region, while also providing people with clean burning stoves that reduce air pollution – a principle cause of respiratory health issues for community members.
