Testimonials from stove end-users

“It allowed me to rest more because I used to spend more time for collecting wood when cooking with the traditional stove, often numerous hours per week. Since I am living alone, there is nobody else who can help me with this task. The improved cook stove needs less wood and therefore I was able to rest instead of collecting wood all the time..”

“This stove cooks faster and doesn’t produce too much smoke. It’s not easy to find the firewood in this area. I was able to save time because this stove reduced the travels I made in search of wood. My kitchen is always clean and I also like this stove for it cooks faster compared with other cooking devices. My heart is overwhelmed with joy because of this amazing project.”
