Social Impact Project for Partnership Research and Development: Coffee and Tea Plantation
Project Description and Impact
This project is critical for our organization to scale our efforts to deploy Prakti cookstoves in the developing world. We have successfully conducted pilots of Prakti cookstoves where we have received amazing feedback. Our next step is to deploy these cookstoves at scale at tea and coffee estates. By doing so we will be positively impacting the health of cooks (mostly women, children), saving them time (in gathering wood, in cooking), reducing their expenses, and reducing release of toxic gases in the atmosphere.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
How to influence stakeholders
How to create partnerships for a win-win
How to implement cookstoves in emerging markets
This project accepts virtual experteers.
