How it works

  • Project developer takes funds from carbon offset purchases to provide subsidies on the cook stoves, assembly, training for local women, and project management
  • Cookstoves are provided to the local community at an affordable rate
  • Cookstoves eliminate the need for women to gather wood to be used for fuel, or purchase fossil fuels, also eliminating any subsequent CO2 emissions
  • As a result, kitchens are healthier and safer and women in the community are empowered through training programs
