Fighting Deforestation, Climate Change and Health Issues with the ECOCA




PESITHO with Gorilla Habitat and Caritas Denmark launch their GoFundMe Campaign to supply local families in the area surrounding the Virunga Mountains in Uganda with solar-powered cookstoves.


Watch the video to get all information on how the partnership works:

The collaborative strategy is to supply local families in communities surrounding the Gorilla Habitat with ECOCA cookstoves as an alternative to burning firewood and charcoal for daily cooking needs. This counteracts deforestation and protects the Mountain Gorilla’s natural living space and promotes health and living conditions for the inhabitants of communities surrounding the habitat.


We are proud to announce our first Campaign as Partners to tackle issues most effectively and provide as many families as possible with our solar powered ECOCA cookstoves.


Back in late 2020 a partnership between the NGO Gorilla Habitat and PESITHO in collaboration with Caritas has been established in order to join forces and battle deforestation of rainforest areas around the Virunga Mountain National Park in Uganda and simultaneously support health and living conditions of families in local communities by enabling access to clean cooking appliances.

If you want to support PESITHO & GORILLA HABITAT in providing families with clean cooking appliances to improve living conditions and health, counteract deforestation and save an endangered species, then please use the following link in order to make a donation:
