Project Description


One the largest challenges in the developing world is the use of indoor stoves for cooking, contributing to the 4.3 million deaths every year from smoke inhalation worldwide.

Project Stoke trains local craftsmen in the developing world to assemble fuel efficient stoves that produce much less smoke and only leaves behind charcoal (biochar), which can be amended into compost for use in gardening or farming. Our stove transforms cooking into an effectively carbon negative activity while supporting food security, employment levels, the local economy, and indoor air quality. To date, 123 stoves have been made and sold, impacting over 700 people, in particular women and children who are the most at risk to exposure.
