Project 19: Energy-saving stoves in the schools of Kibera (II)
Replacing open fireplaces by energy-saving cooking stoves in 11 schools of the Kibera Slum, Nairobi
Children and youngsters supported: 2 200.
Budget: € 14 450.
The project seeks to increase school enrolment, attendance and retention of pupils living in the Kibera Slum, Nairobi. It consists in equipping 11 private schools operating within the slum with energy-saving stoves to support their school feeding programmes. The stoves consume less fuel hence allowing the schools to save on costs and supply meals at a cheaper rate affordable to the poorest families of the slum. This technology has also an environmental impact through the reduction of CO2 emissions and of wood consumption.
– 50% reduction of firewood consumption in 11 schools
– Reduction of the school feeding programme fees
– Increased enrolment, attendance and retention of pupils from destitute families
– Enhanced safety and sanitary conditions in school kitchens
– Reduction of CO2 emissions
