Working in Tanzania to create local cook stove entrepreneurs while at the same time providing a safer, cleaner environment for local communities.


Household Air Pollution kills 20,000 people every year in Tanzania due to the use of harmful cooking devices that release toxic emissions.

These are also inefficient and consume a high amount of solid fuels, such as charcoal, leading families to spend up to 25% of their income on cooking fuel solely.

Women have little opportunity and support to develop their own business and earn on average 18£ a month, 3 times less than their male counterpart.  Us as a team saw an opportunity to create a product which not just provides the women in Tanzania a business but also provide a cleaner, less toxic solution to the cooking problem out there.
