We are supporting the Cookstove Project


Working in Agara and Banepa

In Nepal, we currently work in the communities of Agara and Banepa. In contrast to the steady growth of our work in Uganda, the story of the Cookstove Project in Nepal involves two very distinct phases divided by the quake that devastated large areas of the nation in April 2015. Thousands of Nepalese died and millions more were displaced. The 130,000 homes that were destroyed included many that had received new cookstoves in the previous year.  

Our Mission

The project aims to eliminate the preventable deaths in developing countries that are caused by cooking with a three stone open fire.

Nearly three billion people prepare food for their families using an open fire in their home.  This inefficient cooking method exposes users to dangerous pollutants.

We train and supervise families in the process of building and maintaining their own clean cookstoves. In order to keep costs low and to ensure the organic growth of the project, we mostly use local materials that are readily accessible to homeowners. Each stove is custom made to accommodate the cooking pots used in the home. The project emphasizes personal and community ownership, which ensures that the stoves will continue to be used for years to come.
