The Hongera Clean Cookstove Project

The Hongera Clean Cookstove project is working to improve the livelihoods of poorer families in Kenya, preserve indigenous forestry and reduce global CO2 emissions.


About Project

Open fire cooking is still commonplace around the world. It is both fuel intensive and hazardous to human health. In Kenya alone it is a major contributor to health issues experienced in poorer regions. Alongside associated health problems, this method of cooking is responsible for continual deforestation of indigenous woodland areas. The Hongera Project is working to resolve this issue in Kenya through the production and provision of clean cookstoves. Requiring much less fuel wood, each energy efficient stove is designed to reduce exposure to harmful smoke fumes while recording a certified offset in carbon CO2 emissions - essential if we are to meet global goals in CO2 reduction. Together with your help this project can change the lives of people while contributing towards a cleaner, greener future for all of us.
