442 Changu Stoves Built #savingtreesistrending

August 30, 2017


Can you believe that two years into the Changu Changu Moto project we have built 442 stoves in communities?


442 stoves is 442 households affecting approx. 2,210 people.  That is a HUGE impact on community lives.  Families use less firewood, spend less time looking for wood, can cook two pots of food quicker & simultaneously, as well as saving money on matches….


Can you tell we love numbers?


Some families can spend a few hours a day collecting wood – imagine all the time gained. 


But what we are really excited about is the amount of trees that have been saved.  One Changu uses one third of the wood used by a traditional open fire, that means 442 fires everyday are using two thirds less firewood than previously each day.





We LOVE that families are using less wood, cutting down less trees and in the same process learning about the importance of trees and how to grow them.


A little project, with a HUGE impact
