SWITCH SCHOOLS AND ORPHANAGES
Schools are heavy users of charcoal. Cooks, mostly women, prepare meals for hundred of children in each schools and are exposed to smoke from traditional cookstoves. With our partner, the American NGO World Central Kitchen, we aim to convert 500 schools to LPG. To benefit from our program’s assistance, schools need to meet certain criteria: I ) location and accessibility, 2) has regular canteen, 3) has capacity to pay for refill through, and 4) will assign cooks to receive the “sink to stove” training. We Substitute charcoal stoves with clean and high performance LPG stoves and provide material for clean cooking and storage
So far, more than 160 schools have been converted and 1000 cooks have access to a clean cooking environment and material. 80% of personnel are women and School personnel is trained on food sanitation and hygiene.
