Clean Cooking Activities
We build stoves for women and families in Guatemala who cook over open fires. Our "Peace Corps" design reduces firewood consumption by 50% on average.
We'd love to get involved in research on emissions inside the homes of women who cook over open fires and contrast that with data from homes of women who cook using our stoves. We lack the financial resources to do so.
