Women’s Empowerment

  • Women bear the brunt of the negative impacts of traditional cooking. Often forced to gather their own fuel for cooking, they can spend hours each day walking to find wood and carry it home.
  • Cooking over a three stone fire, women inhale harmful smoke equivalent to two packs of cigarettes per day.
  • Cooking activities consume all the energy for the women. In case of young girls, they are hardly left with time for other activities.

Prakti stoves improve the lives of women and girls around the world. Using 50 percent less fuel than traditional chulhas (stoves), our stoves save women time and energy usually spent gathering wood.

Also, Prakti stoves help them cook twice as faster leaving time for kids family and education.
