With funding from the Disney Conservation Fund, two women groups consisting of 151 women from around the Kalinzu and Budongo Central Forest Reserves were equipped with the knowledge and skills of constructing energy efficient cooking stoves. This is to reduce on the use of much firewood which is becoming scarce in our communities as a result of rising population, increased deforestation and poor energy saving practices. The stoves are to minimize indoor air pollution as well as reduce the amount of time and effort women and young girls spend in gathering firewood and therefore engage themselves in education and income generating activities.
