Emergency Saving Stoves: Organized women CBOs to be supported to manufacture, distribute and promote improved cooking stoves, reducing indoor air pollution and fuel consumption by engaging women in the production of energy saving jiko liners, clean cookstoves. Women engaged in the production and distribution. Installation of several biogas plants: Use of biogas as fuel to supply homes or small scale farmers. Rehau biogas units are already in use in WHH- western Kenya and are ideal since they utilize dung from as little as two dairy cows to produce 3 hours of heating.
