Problem

Around 3 billion people all over the world are still deprived of access to clean cooking solutions. Cooking on traditional mud stoves or open fires have tremendous health hazards to the users, who are mostly women. Often their children are around them, who also inhale the fumes and are thus negatively impacted. Due to unaffordable rates of LPG and limited access to electricity, women remain dependent on biomass powered cookstoves for all their heating and cooking needs.

Solution

It is important to address the inefficiency of traditional stoves. It is also important to note that while the government policies in many countries including India emphasize maximizing access to LPG, most rural households depend on more than one energy source for cooking and heating. While LPG is one of the cleanest coking solutions, it is important to focus on transitional cooking solutions that provide some health and environmental benefits to the users.

Target Beneficiaries

Ethnicity: South Asian, South-east Asian, African Gender: Female Age: 18-65 years

Mission and Vision

Greenway aims to make clean cooking a reality for the millions of families that are still dependent on solid fuels for cooking, reduce the negative impact of cooking on open fires and traditional cooking methods on the climate and the health of the users, who are primarily women. The reductions in smoke emissions and fuel consumption will help address the issues of household air pollution and excessive felling of trees for cooking.
