Improving health

Here is the new cooker that has been made in the kitchen of the Children's Centre. It will cut down dramatically on the number of burns and scalds suffered by people and children using the old method. It will also cut down on smoke inhalation which causes severe respiratory problems.
Below is a photo of the traditional method, using three rocks and a great deal of firewood. The new stoves and furnace are all made from locally available materials.

Thanks to Musafiri and friends at the African Community for Sustainable Development (ACSD) for training our village to make these stoves. We hope that householders will adopt this method in the future.
