Mass distribution of Clean Cook Rocket Stoves to over 100 women

2Last Sunday the 15th of April we distributed Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves (2BCCROST) to over 100 women of Bunakijja in Mukono District and Namaliri in Buikwe District. The stoves will help to reduce on the amount of firewood used per day in cooking thus reducing cutting down of trees in communities.

On average, a single family in rural Uganda uses between 20-30 firewood of each 2M long. With the introduction of 2BCCROST, a single family is expected to use a maximum of 5 firewood per day of each 2M long.
