With 90% of sub-Saharan African cooking over an open fire, the consequences on health, livelihood and to the environment are devastating. Lifeline’s innovative fuel-efficient cookstove program is tackling the problem of rising wood and charcoal costs while decreasing the amount of biomass used for cooking.

Outputs:

  • 400,000+ efficient cookstoves sold/distributed across East Africa and the Caribbean
  • One of the largest stove manufacturing centers in Uganda: producing 8,000 stoves per month and employing 150+ community members
  • 42% average fuel savings for household stoves, 60% average fuel savings for institutional stoves

Community impacts:

  • Over 2 million lives impacted
  • Over 1 million tons of CO2 offset through the use of fuel-saving stoves
  • 10% increase in disposable income for 96,000 urban and peri-urban families in Uganda
