One-Page Brief on Stoves

Resource Default

For communities all over the world, the kitchen is the place where families gather to cook dinner, share meals, and pass down stories. However, according to the World Health Organization, nearly three billion people cook on open fires in their homes. Indoor air pollution as a result of these fires leads to pulmonary disease, eye injuries, burns, and four million premature deaths per year. In addition, three billion people harvesting fuelwood every day is a major cause of deforestation.

To help, ECOLIFE provides safe stoves for families. With cleaner air and reduced fuel dependence, children grow up healthier and spend less time collecting fuelwood, giving them more opportunities to further their education and setting them up for success and healthy lifestyles.
