Kilimanjaro: Environment and Health Sustainability (Tanzània) 

Description: A big number of families still have traditionally cooked their meals on the ground in the house over an open flame. As a traditional house usually has only one room, the whole house is filled with smoke before and after meals. As a result, acute respiratory and eye diseases are a significant problem for women and children. Additionally, this traditional form of cooking requires large amounts of firewood, which puts pressure on the Mount Kilimanjaro forest and is thus a major contributor to climate change. This project is therefore working towards initiatives to reduce pressure to the forest through promotion of healthy and energy serve stoves.

The stoves will be built in few house as demonstration for the rest of the community learn and implement in their homes.
