We’re here to empower kids all over the world, so we thought we'd share a few reasons why a new stove is necessary for children to thrive.
First things first, health and safety
Breathing in toxic smoke doubles the risk for childhood pneumonia (respiratory illness is currently the #1 killer of children under five-years-old).
Many moms strap their babies to their backs while they cook the family’s meals, unaware their babies are inhaling toxic smoke from their open fire.
Children often help their moms collect firewood and it’s grueling work.
Using a stove instead of an open fire saves families 10 hours each week from collecting wood. This time can be invested back into the classroom.
Efficient stoves mean a bright future for children. That’s why we’re creating stove businesses throughout Kenya.
Thanks to you around 82,000 children are breathing easier!
