Stage 4: Transition to Scale

A proof of concept was conducted through a grant from Grand Challenges Canada in 2014/15. Currently a Business model that incorporates stove production and briquettes distribution through Household energy centers is on course with sales ongoing.

Problem

Lack of access to clean drinking water is a major development challenge facing communities in informal and rural settlements in Kenya resulting in Water borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhea. women in the community spend a significant amount of their time caring for family and friends who are ill. This escalated water borne diseases especially diarrhea which affects millions of people worldwide, having the greatest impact on children, especially in Sub Saharan Africa

}

Solution

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.

Target Beneficiaries

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.


Mission and Vision

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


Innovation Description

Jiko Raha 02 ( charcoal and briquettes ) – both 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. The stove through pilot studies was able to save a household USD 17.85 monthly with fuel reduction from USD 23.81 to only USD 5.96 monthly a 75% reduction in fuel costs and zero cost in water sanitization which has contributed to reduction of water borne diseases.

Competitive Advantage

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.
