Clean Cooking Activities
Despite the enormous wealth in energy resources, the vast majority of the Nigerian population is not only extremely poor economically, but energy poor as well. An estimated 98 per cent of households lack access to quality cooking and lighting fuels. This situation compels families to depend wholly on inferior and health damaging fuel wood and kerosene fuel. The overwhelming population of Nigeria is desperate for clean cooking energy.
As one travels throughout the states of Nigeria, fuel wood gathering from forests that have become marginal, together with long queues of people waiting to purchase kerosene that is perennially scarce, is in evidence everywhere. For the most part, women are seen in the evenings returning home carrying enormous bundles of fuel wood on their head after a full day’s drudgery of wood gathering.
In the urban centers, up to nine per cent of the households depend on kerosene to supplement fuel wood in some cases. About 1 per cent depends on Liquefied Petroleum Gas. The use of kerosene has been hampered by a corrupt distribution system, poor quality and condensate – laden kerosene that burn with high emissions of soot and particulate matter. Contaminated kerosene has continued to claim lives in Nigeria.
This activity’s mission is to spread the use of clean and improved cook stove technology as a replacement to charcoal, firewood and expensive LPGs in Africa as simply and as rapidly as possible.
Entrepreneurship Education should be in every area and the aim is to make us learn to do things from the ordinary ways of doing things to doing things in more effective ways. We are planning to bring Entrepreneurship Education trainers and resource persons from abroad and within to train our teachers. We can do and achieve more when we are better trained. There is need to train our graduates to become self employed and self reliant. One doesn’t need large room to start a business. Hence, through this partnership we shall sensitize and educate our students and our immediate community on the need to adopt environmentally friendly fuel and energy.
