Here are the facts about cookstoves:
Locally-made stoves drastically reduce toxic smoke emissions
Use 50 percent less charcoal than cooking over open fires
One stove saves six trees per year from being cut down for fuel
Prevents 1 ton of carbon from being emitted into the atmosphere
Some researchers believe black carbon is the second-largest driver of climate change, after carbon dioxide.
Ivanka Trump is spearheading the The Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment (WEEE) Act, supporting women in developing countries.
However, the Trump administration has failed to recognize that women in developing communities are hit hardest by climate change, affecting their ability to thrive economically. They are living in extreme poverty making less than $2 and are continually finding ways to survive and thrive.
It doesn’t help that cooking over open fires is one of the world’s biggest - but least known - killers of women and children. 4.3 million people die each year from breathing in toxic cooking smoke.
We need your support more than ever.
