Energy Saving Stoves
We have been encouraging the use of Energy Saving Stoves for a number of years. We have developed a system of moulding the liners within the community through women’s fellowships. By installing the liners when they are air-dried but unfired we have found this to be a very acceptable product that is truly accessible. Click here for information leaflet on the Maendeleo Jiko

Other Kitchen Improvements
Other Kitchen Improvements that have gone alongside the installed stoves, have been:
- mud cupboards
- mud seats in the kitchen
- hangers for drying firewood
- porous pots for cooling drinking water and food (Click here to see more on Clay Pot Fridge)
Benefits of Kitchen Improvements
- A benefit of the stoves burning the wood more efficiently, means that there is very little smoke so that it is pleasant to sit in the kitchen and even to entertain guests while working.
- The improvements in the kitchen have enormously improved the self esteem of most of the women who have installed them.
