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.
