Clean Cooking Activities
WIRES has the biggest production facility for fuel efficient cookstoves in Somalia. Our efficient cookstoves reduce the amount of charcoal and wood used and protect women from toxic chemicals produced by open fires and traditional stoves. This project is part of a three-year programme called Somalia Energy Transformation (SET) where WIRES' partners with female entrepreneurs to produce and market fuel efficient stoves. The project is funded by the EU.
The end goal of the program is to ensure girls and youth spend little or no time looking for firewood and charcoal as energy sources. We work to ensure that they have more time allocated to studying and for that reason we are seeking investment and support from donors and investors who share our mission.
