Clean Cooking Activities
Kinniya, Lingapuram and Mallakam are in the District of Trincomalee. The displaced people of the civil war are living here in small, critical housing, and hygienic conditions result from the lack of basic services. 90% of the population of these districts use charcoal based cooking stoves, which have low energy efficiency.
The Centre for Human Resource Development Cookstoves will build a public-private partnership to introduce one million stoves to displaced Sri Lankan people by 2020.
To promote energy efficiency, conserve natural resources, and improve the living conditions of the poor and displaced populations living in the area. We vet our partnership thoroughly and conduct site visits to ensure that we are creating livelihoods that are truly lifting 'people are out of poverty. We will create detailed work plans with our partnership and obtain specialized training and capacity building so we can learn how to manage displaced people their own business.
