The donation is used to invest in one of three community based schemes which provide a reduction in carbon emissions produced through inefficient cooking systems and the burning of fossil fuels - effectively helping people to help our planet.
The investment in such schemes improves the availability and access to cleaner, greener stoves which use renewable materials, improves air quality and reduces the carbon footprint of inefficient cooking appliances.
By providing safer cooking equipment, this also has a direct impact on the health of women, children and families in impoverished areas and creates employment opportunities that would not otherwise have been accessed.
