There are some great developments happening with our ECOCA in Uganda with Caritas Denmark and Novo Nordisk Foundation / Novo Nordisk Fonden.
The project in Uganda is part of a wider initiative financed by Caritas Denmark under a strategic partnership agreement with the Danish International Development Agency (Danida). The Novo Nordisk Foundation has also awarded a grant of DKK 749,944 for the project!
This new project by Caritas Denmark in Uganda aims to establish and test some funding mechanisms to ensure the wider use of ECOCA. One of these mechanisms is creating a revolving fund. This will be financed by the income that Caritas Denmark receives from the instalment payments for each ECOCA sold and by the income from carbon credits. The money can then be used to subsidize the purchase of additional ECOCA cookers, so that more families can benefit from this technology.
