In Bambui Village cooking with open fire in closed kitchens is still a common practice, with more than 99% of the women still resorting to this. Reliance on inefficient cookstoves and fuels leads to health (emphysema, cataracts, cancer, heart disease, etc.) and economic burdens that disproportionately impact women and girls, particularly because cooking and fuel collection largely remain a woman’s responsibility.
This project includes the construction of different stove cooks prototypes to show the different possibilities and different fuels available. It also aims at training and hiring 4 team leaders throughout one year, so that they elaborate and present a sensitization programme in all the 36 quarters of the Bambui Village.
