WHY

PESITHO

Scarce resources in rural areas

Trees in off-grid areas are becoming a scarse resource, as they are the only natural livestock for fireplaces in normal house-holds. Alternatively old car tires, plastic and other flammable materials are used – which is one of the major causes for diseases and death.

 

Fireplaces are currently indoors

All food is cooked in kitchens inside small clay-houses, resulting in smoke and other poisonous gases in the families’ living spaces .

 

Our solution, the ECOCA

Imagine “no worries” could be given to the basic needs of cooking food for families in off-grid areas. This would change their lives significantly, as it would allow them to use time and energy on other things, thereby developing their lives for the better, instead of thinking about what many take for granted.
