Smarter Cooking for Indian Women
Traditional cooking methods in villages require a lot of wood. This results in rapid deforestation and the excessive smoke produced causes various respiratory diseases in the women using them. Energy efficient biomass stoves will solve the problem of smoke and will require less wood as fuel.
150 tribal households of Bairagarh and Shankarpura (Bijawar Block, Chhatarpur District, Madhya Pradesh) who are dependent on agriculture and non-timber forest produce will benefit.
