Clean Cooking Activities
KAYISADE® is disseminating and promoting the use of Mthandizi Rocket Stove. The stove is often made from recycled metal and its lifespan can be 9-12 months. The stove reduces smoke and emissions by up to 70%. It targets urban households that currently purchase fuel (normally wood and charcoal). The stove is affordable, aesthetic and is tasked with encouraging urban households to veer away from unsustainably produced charcoal and move efficient and economical wood-burning stove. Initial customers and stove focus groups in Malawi express their satisfaction with the design, which accommodates cooking local dishes such as nsima. All the inputs are locally made involving metal workers and potters. The stoves reduce fuel consumption by 50%. The stoves raise the cooking pot to the hottest point above the flame and have elbow-jointed combustion chambers that increase combustion efficiency. It significantly reduces fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. It provide ancillary benefits to users and families in the form of reduced exposure to indoor air pollution and relief from high fuel costs. Public benefits of the devices promoted come in the form of reduced pressure on Malawi's natural resources.
KAYOED would like to participate in the partnership as this will enhance the capacity of the organisation and staff hence achieving its mission and objectives of promoting the use of clean cooking stoves thereby reducing air pollution and improving the community members health.
