Indoor air pollution is a major health problem in Uganda and much of the world. Smoke from cooking fires has a range of health effects such as child pneumonia, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and heart disease. World wide 3 billion people cook on open fires, so this is not a small problem!
Kibo Group partners with men and women in rural communities to build low cost, energy-efficient stoves that are safer, faster and use less wood than traditional stoves. This improves health and gives women more time in the day for other pursuits.
