BURUNDI: Efficient Cookstove Program Helps Save Time + Money

A partnership between Lifeline and the United Nations World Food Program has helped significantly reduce fuel costs and the amount of time required to cook meals for the students in Burundi. As part of the project, Lifeline constructed 20 institutional stoves – made entirely from local materials and fueled by biomass briquettes – at four schools across the Cibitoke province in 2016. In addition, Lifeline produced 2,100 household wood stoves in the Gitega province, benefitting approximately 10,500 individuals.
