Clean Cooking Activities
There will be 3-4 training sessions; training will last 3-4 months and will involve 30-40 students each. It is essential that 90 percent of the students are females as they are the most involved with domestic work and will be the primary users of the environmentally friendly stove. There will be 4 employees including the manager of the program, the main instructor of the classes, an assistant instructor, and a caretaker of the facility. The project will be operating from Jaffarabad and Naserabad, Pakistan.The Districts of Jaffarabad and Naserabad are heavily wooded areas where both charcoal and coal are biomass wastes in abundance. These resources are not being used for fuel purposes, leaving them as wasted potential. The coal/charcoal stove technology has been developed in recent years. There is no restriction on copying, sales, or any other patent issue. With adequate apprentice knowledge coal/charcoal briquettes can be made on a commercial basis using readily available resources. It is a good replacement for other cooking fuel sources such as wood, kerosene, LPG etc., particularly in terms of fuel saving and in producing a quality flame during cooking. Using coal/charcoal stoves will significantly reduce the cost of household spending on conventional fuel sources such as electricity and kerosene.Upon completion of training, the women will return back to their hometowns and, by purchasing a small inventory of equipment, they will be able to produce their own enterprises.
With the support of the Alliance, we would like to implement a clean cookstoves project in Pakistan. We have experience in the region. Our sister organization, the Center for International Study and Development, currently operates three schools in the Amori district of Pakistan.®
