Nyumbani Innovations Limited
We are committed to helping create positive change. We want to offer home improvements through offering stoves to people cooking inefficiently. We are committed to:
Offering health benefits, primarily for women and children: through reducing indoor air pollution.
Lightening womens work: through facilitating less fuel gathering and an improved cooking environment.
Conservation including mitigating climate change: through reducing fuel demand.
Monetizing emission reductions is key: it makes the stoves affordable and makes the changes possible. Also, the stove users become part of the market solution to tackle climate change: payments received for their emission reductions are invested in further developing the business and installing more stoves, so early stove users are passing on benefits and assisting other communities. They are part of the ˜real returns cycle“ creating real changes in the world.
We would like all Maasai households to have clean, healthy homes and believe this stove and roll-out model to be sustainable and replicable.

Nyumbani Innovations Limited.® This is a private limited company, established and registered in Tanzania that has been established to expand into a profitable business the stove project with the Maasai that has been established to date under a charity.® ® Nyumbani Innovations has come under the For Stoves Programme of Activities (PoA) umbrella to be guided and helped to receive and monetise CERs from the new stoves.® The existing charitable project that Nyumbani Innovations is going to expand and run as a profitable company is the Maasai Stoves and Solar Project of the International Collaborative for Science, Education and the Environment (ICSEE). The ICSEE stove has been designed with Maasai women and it's designed for their way of cooking and living.® ® Currently ICSEE is working in seven villages and has installed over 700 stoves. ®
The full business plan is to scale-up current operations: establishing a factory plus a distribution and installation network, ramping up to production of 30,000 stoves a year.® ® There is an identified market of around 1.9m homes of the current design of stove with Maasai and Sukuma people and another 750k homes in other tribes.®
The project will harnessing markets as greenhouse gases are reduced.® There is local, paid employment, less smoke, fewer particulates and reduced carbon monoxide, many less hours spent collecting wood and reduced deforestation.® ® The women love the stoves; not only are their homes and clothes cleaner and their children healthier, they have to spend a great deal less time and energy gathering firewood and some have the opportunity to install stoves and be paid for their work.
The stoves save lives, change women's daily experiences and benefit the environment. ®
We would like to share our experience of working in rural communities at grassroot level.® ® ICSEE, which Nyumbani is building on, has grown from having no presence in Maasai land to three and a half years later having a workshop, teams of trained women, 700 stoves installed in seven villages, Maasai visitors from neighbouring countries, receiving awards for contributing sustainably to the growth of communities.
We are also connected to the carbon market and have many years' of experience of carbon finance in the company.®
