UK Study Options donated five stoves to a school in Kibera before Christmas vis EcoZoom a not-for-profit organisation in Nairobi distributing energy efficient charcoal stoves.
We received the email below we wanted to share.
On Saturday the 13th of February, we visited the Kibera slum in Nairobi 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 your help, these families are now 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 that your help has made to their lives is enormous, and we wanted to thank you for your donations!
