Donate a stove, change a life in Kibera! March 06 2016
Did you know that by donating a stove, you could help improve the life of a family in Kibera for up to 5 years?
On Saturday the 13th of February we visited the area for one of our 'Donate a Stove' events. It was great to make another 20 families happy!
Kibera is the largest slum in Nairobi, and the largest urban slum in Africa. Estimates of the population range from 500,000 to well over 1,000,000. Unemployment rates are high, and most residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1 a day.
With help from donors, these families are able to save up to 70% of their spending on charcoal, improve their health thanks to 60% less smoke, as well as save time on cooking! The difference the donations make to their lives is huge.
At EcoZoom we are determined to enable these families to improve their lives by saving up to $200 a year, and by living healthier. Every time a stove is donated, we are able to help a family in need for up to 5 years! Let’s keep up the good work and spread the word about healthy, efficient and eco-friendly cooking, for everyone!
