Project Description

In regard to clean cooking, Lifeline seeks to ignite a radical change in habits by stimulating demand for fuel-efficient stoves (FES) amongst those living at the bottom of the pyramid and in the hardest-to-reach rural areas. Lifeline prioritizes entrepreneurial and income-generating interventions in the local communities in which it works. The project enrolled 100 women in the stove construction training and on how to use the stove. Each woman had agreed that she would pass the knowledge on to 5 other women. Overall, the project included production of 1,500 fuel-efficient stoves.The project has several objectives including: (1) establish a market-based fuel efficient stove market in Northern Uganda; (2) establish a self-sustainable manufacturing site to meet growing demand for stoves; (3) increase FES awareness and the environmental benefits throughout Northern Uganda to increase demand.
