On 26th October the SFR meeting in Nyamata, Bugesera was held . All the stakeholders attended represented the beneficiaries of our project which is in cooperation with co2balance. All attendees were informed about the conditions and requirements.
The project is ought to pass out the so called ‘energy saving stoves’ aiming on the lack of firewood remaining within the families. As our survey outlined the average wooden fuel consumption amounts 18.5 kgs per day and family. Indeed this causes extremely high dependence on wood. Moreover endures the high emission of co2. co2balance decided to adjust the stove in a way that beneficiaries can receive purified potable water.
By bringing those stoves into action more than 50 percent of daily use of firewood could be reduced.
All stages of implementation of the project have been respected; concluding this meeting is the last stage of setting in a continuous input mechanism. Now we wait for the permission to begin.
