Fuel efficient stoves

04 November 11

 Thanks to a very talented SAIDIA volunteer and the support of Honey Badger Lodge the school will soon be building its very own fuel efficient stove. Uli (a civil engineer) will be working with some local masons to teach them to build a stove that will reduce the amount of firewood the school uses as well as reducing the smoke in the kitchen. Currently the school cooks on a large stove as well as a traditional three stone variety just outside. Firewood is a constant problem. The new stove (pictures will follow) promises to rectify this. Our hope is that together Uli, the masons, Mama Lucy and Joey will come up with a cost effective stove which can be replicated throughout the surrounding community. Watch this space for more information.
