THE ISSUE OF OUR TIME

THE CHALLENGE

Around 2.7 billion people rely on inefficient cooking and heating practices worldwide, contributing 25% of all climate changing black carbon. Lack of energy access burdens women, who spend up to 5 hours a day collecting fuel for cooking.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Cleaner sources of household energy can enhance the quality of life of households around the world. Improved cookstoves save women 70 hours annually and can reduce solid fuel consumption by between 30-60%.
