Based in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Westwind Energy (SL) Limited designs, manufactures and distributes some of the most efficient cookstoves in West Africa using the brand name Wonder Stoves™ which was established in 1990.
In 2012, Tapsir and Hannah took over the business, elevating it to new heights and now sell over 6 different models, using various fuels. Our current facility has the capacity of 2000 stoves per month and employs over 30 people, 40% of which are women. Since 2012, we have distributed over 50,000 cookstoves in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. The stoves offer a reduction in household fuel expenses, lowering biomass consumption by up 50% and carbon emissions and disease relating to indoor air pollution from smoke in the kitchen.
We will continue to drive the manufacturing and distribution of improved cookstoves and other energy saving household products and fuels in the fight to reduce deforestation; reduce carbon emissions; reduce cost of cooking; dramatically reduce the risk of respiratory disease for women and children in their living environment.
