The efficient cook stovThe project aims to construct energy efficient cook stoves for rural communities in the former Siaya district in Nyanza Province, Kenya. The efficient cook stove is a biomass rocket stove designed for burning wood and consisting of two cooking units that can be separately fired. The stove is fixed and installed in households and reduces firewood consumption by approximately 40-50%. The efficient cook stoves are constructed using locally available materials, such as mud, bricks and sawdust. Local artisans are identified in the villages and trained in stove construction and household mobilization. An innovative village based group savings and loaning will be integrated to enhance affordability and access to stoves. The project is developed by the Swiss non-profit foundation myclimate and is coordinated and implemented by the Kenyan Tembea Youth Centre for Sustainable Development (Ugunja, Kenya). The project foresees the construction of up to 40,000 stoves over the period of 7 years.
