Three problems, one solution. Traditional cooking methods with open fires cost more lives in Malawi than tuberculosis and HIV/Aids combined. In addition, the high demand of firewood causes a high amount of wood clearing. Also, little kids get unnecessarily burned frequently. The clay oven developed by Florian Klaus and distributed by us in the region Benga, saves up to 50% of firewood and protects from the open fire. The households profit healthwise and save money, which can be invested in the future of their children. Because we work together with local bricklayers, we provide people from the region a secure and well-payed employment.
About 35€ are enough to build one oven, with half being material costs and half wages.
