The project frees up a significant amount of time tied to collecting fuelwood and cooking time. Women tied to these activities will be able to pursue meaningful economic activities with the saved time.
Reducing drudgery and indoor toxic emissions will reduce the overall negative health effects involved with these activities. This, in turn, enables the household to take up economical activities, improving their socioeconomic standing.
Children in these forest fringe areas spend a significant amount of time collecting and transporting fuel woods. Reducing this will allow them to pursue education.
The project provides direct and indirect employment opportunities to people through the manufacturing and distribution of cookstoves and monitoring required for the project.
