Successful conclusion of the microproject « Sustainable environmental protection in five villages in the district of Thiès » financed with 6.000 € by the German Embassy!
In the scope of the project 500 families in five villages were equipped with improved charcoal-stoves. In workshops, all villagers could learn how to easily and effectively build a low-consumption charcoal-stove, which then could be used for themselves.
Compared to traditional stoves, consumption could be lowered by up to 50 %. Besides the positive effect on the environment, many women emphasize that now they have more time to do other things, for example generating an income.
