Women and girls in rural Malawi have to collect and carry heavy firewood that releases toxic fumes when burned, and causes damage to their lungs and the environment.
Jesuit Missions is working with the Jesuit Centre for Ecology and Development (JCED) to provide new stoves that use briquettes made out of recycled organic waste instead of firewood. JCED staff are training households to prepare these briquettes. This is life-changing for women and girls in the region.
The new stoves convert the excess heat energy into electricity. One stove can provide enough electricity to light a three bedroomed house for over six hours a night.
Donate today to help rural households access clean energy for cooking and get the basic electricity they need in their homes.
