Here are the recent achievements and exciting prospects of the project:

  • Site visit achievements: A comprehensive site visit was recently conducted, marking a pivotal step in our project’s progress. This hands-on assessment has enabled us to refine our strategies for a more impactful distribution and implementation phase.
  • Calculating potential for change: The potential Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) have been meticulously calculated, illuminating the tangible environmental benefits our project is poised to deliver. This milestone underscores our commitment to not only fostering healthier living conditions but also contributing to global environmental sustainability.
  • Awaiting strategic enhancements: We are at a critical juncture, awaiting the development of an improved distribution strategy. This strategy will ensure that our energy-efficient cookstoves reach the heart of communities in need, optimising our impact on both the environment and the wellbeing of Ethiopian households.
  • Financial foundations for future success: The anticipation builds as we await the finalisation of the Production Budget. This financial blueprint is key to scaling our efforts and maximising the project's reach and effectiveness.

At its core, the Ethiopia Cookstoves Project is an initiative towards creating a healthier, more sustainable Ethiopia. By targeting the distribution of 150,000 energy-efficient cookstoves, we aim to drastically reduce deforestation, improve indoor air quality for local households, and uplift the socio-economic conditions of countless communities across the nation.
