It is here, World Environment Day! This is incredibly important day to us at Pesitho since so much of our work seeks to have a direct impact on environmental issues, including reducing deforestation and air pollution associated with burning solid biomass for cooking.
To celebrate this day, our partners from Caritas Uganda, Gloria and Judith, have been presenting the ECOCA cookstove at the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement in Northern Uganda. To demonstrate the benefits of using our smokeless cook stove they decided to cooked some boiled eggs. Taking just a few minutes to prepare the simple dish, simply requiring the press of a button, it was a great way to show how easy it is to switch cooking techniques to everyday cooking. This also gave the partners a chance to talk about what World Environment Day means, particularly reducing firewood consumptions and the impact that smoke and soot particles can have on one’s health.
Special thanks to Gloria, Judith and Caritas Uganda
