In Malawi, 90% of the population live off-grid, and rural women suffers from health hazard smoke cooking and increased costs of fuel wood. At Footsteps Africa, we promote a rural woman-centered design Rocket Stove made from locally available materials. This enables rural off-grid women to cook without smoke, while standing and with less fuel wood. To date, we have trained 20 local Rocket Stove Promoters who educate other women on the benefits of using our Mayi Rocket Stove.
