This escalated water borne diseases especially diarrhea which affects millions of people worldwide, having the greatest impact on children, especially in Sub Saharan Africa
Jiko Raha (charcoal and briquettes) – a fuel-efficient biomass stoves featuring an innovative in built jacket that can be filled with 3 litters of water that enables the user to simultaneously boil water thus sanitizing it whilst cooking enabling households have safe drinking water free of disease causing micro-organisms. This feature both helps to insulate the stove and makes it more efficient.
Rural and urban informal settlements in Nairobi , Kilifi, Kiambu and Kitui in Kenya. Compelling reasons for adoption are, Multitasking aspect, zero costs in boiling water, Reduction in water borne diseases, reduced fuel costs.The project will also target rural communities in Rwanda and Uganda.
Vision : Accelerating access to safe drinking water and clean cook stoves. Hopes : reduction in the incidence of waterborne diseases, compared to the period before they used the stoves for vulnerable households , children who miss school as a result of water-related illnesses reduced, reduced pressure on natural resources due to use of briquettes and use of solar lanterns
Water borne Diseases especially diarrhea affects millions of people worldwide, having the greatest impact on children, especially in developing countries. Water borne diseases remain a cause for concern in both developing and developed countries worldwide. In developed areas, improvement in wastewater disposal, protection of water sources and treatment of water supplies has greatly reduced the prevalence of waterborne diseases. However, in Kenya we have not achieved this in the rural areas where access to clean water is still a big problem. The reason Stamp innovation of a multitasking cooking stove comes in handy in the rural areas of Kenya. Currently, there is no other cook stove product in the market that we are serving that is a dual purpose stove which provides cooking and water disinfection through boiling.
· Water purifier’s that cost more than STAMP multitasking stoves and purify minimal amount of water per day.
