Clean Cooking Activities
Most of the rural women in the area where we are working does not have gas stoves and are still dependent on fire wood and kerosene. Even though the Andhra Pradesh government has been giving gas connection and supplying the gas stoves, many of the women have not received them and are waiting for sanction by the government. If these women are provided the clean cooking stoves it will help them to cook in a better environment and also prevent them from getting diseases and suffering with ill health especially cough and lung infections. The use of clean cooking stoves will help the women to save time in cooking food and utilise the same in other activities such as income generating activity or livelihood projects that will help the families to have additional income so that the children can be provided with nutritious food and schooling.
We would like to be partners with Global Alliance for clean cook stoves and as partners we will educate and motivate those women in our project villages who are still using firewood and kerosene for cooking to adopt clean cook stoves which will help them to cook food in a short time and keep them away from the hazards and diseases caused by the smoke. As partners we will supply the clean cook stoves to these women.
