Yankson is 59 years old and lives with his wife in a small village in Malawi. He is a traditional healer and lives in a compound where visitors are restricted so our fuel-efficient cookstove team haven’t been able to teach him how to construct a cookstove on site.
Looking at the best way to overcome this challenge, Oswald and his team organised a group training session for Yankson and another traditional healer so they could learn how to construct a fuel-efficient cookstove, maintain it and use it correctly.
Equipping people with the knowledge of the benefits of the fuel-efficient cookstove and the skills to build their own one is really important.
