About the Project
and Why it matters
Hongera is a swahili word that means, “celebration.” The Hongera Cookstoves Project will design, craft and deliver 150,000 energy-efficient cookstoves to the diverse communities nestled across the scenic landscapes of Mt Kenya and the Aberdare regions.
Through the reduction of wood consumption, we achieve more than just the preservation of our precious local forests. We also enhance the well-being of the communities we are privileged to serve, with a particular focus on the health and welfare of women and children. Through this project, our mission is to foster better lives for smallholder communities by reducing carbon emissions through the introduction of efficient cooking solutions.
The project has an inbuilt community benefit component, funds that will be utilized towards initiating or maintaining “community good” projects in the community, such as water infrastructure, equipping dispensaries or availing scholarships for needy, bright students.
