Africa Earth Keepers
AEK is active in innovating, designing, manufacturing, and distributing highly efficient, and clean improved stoves to suit any cooking style that is integrated with solar home systems to promote sustainable, cost effective, independent, and reliable energy supplies. We support environmental stewardship to ensure reduction in deaths and tackle climate change to limit global warming and poverty alleviation, local environmental protection, and energy security to achieve share of zero‐ low‐carbon energy sources.

Clean Cooking Activities
The organization’s interest is decidedly to deal with the promotion of efficient, clean, and improved stove that originate from Eritrea and East Africa. We would gradually like to expand to the entire African continent to meet the needs of people who suffer from using inefficient cookstoves. This stove project is addressing this situation by directly promoting cookstoves that reduce household consumption of biomass by more than 75%. Because these stove work in a closed system, they limit high consumption of small sticks, leaves, papers, and garbage. As it relates to large pieces of wood, users can gather fallen branches and twigs for their stoves and leave living trees standing. Although fuel still needs to be collected and prepared for the stove, the family doesn't have to spend long hours to fell whole trees and split logs. To achieve these goals, we take adoptive measures to let the beneficiaries gain ownership and care about stove performance and durability.
Africa Earth Keepers LTD (AEK) will run the project in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves and link with other related organizations and NGOs. When funded, all partners are involved in both the training of women artisans in their villages, and the transport of stove parts to them. To reduce costs, the Africa Earth Keepers LTD (AEK) will conduct a survey of clay analysis to ensure that stove components are made as locally as possible to the villages where stoves are being built. This shall reduce the cost of a completed to stove by at least 20% , as per Eritrea equivalent to the cost of one month's consumption of fuel wood for a household in Asmara.
AEK also will collaborate with Global Alliance for Clean Cook stoves and with a concerning body in adding a tree-planting element to the stove project as well as solar integrated system. In order to apply the above goals in the ground Africa Earth keepers ( AEK) is going to be active in
• The high efficient stove will be replicating and redesigning to suit the cooking style of the project area
• Organizing the beneficiaries into groups as team workforce in village level in its smallest unite consisting 10 or 5 members each to create a back- bone facilitators of the implementation and done with stakeholders
• Conduct base line study in the target area and after implementation kitchen efficient performance test
• Awareness and training how to adopt the stove and use it efficiently and cooperate in similar work with other institutions if possible
