Kenya’s Charlot Magali, who is the founder of Mukuru clean cooking stove was awarded $1.2 million Earth shot Prize by British Prince William.
Mukuru Clean Stoves aims to bring cleaner-burning stoves to women in Kenya and Africa as a whole. According to studies, more than 950 million people in sub-Saharan Africa alone rely on heavily polluting wood and charcoal for cooking. This number is estimated to grow to 1.67 billion by 2050.
Charlot Magayi, 29, began the project in 2017 at Mukuru kwa Njenga slum, one of the biggest slums in Nairobi, Kenya.

This must be the 20th article I’ve seen over the years for low-pollution, clean burning stoves for sub-Saharan African countries.
The stove emits 90% less pollution compared to using wood and far much less than charcoal.
and no information about it in the article?
Maybe it is electric...........................
Maybe it runs on imaginaruim?
Now they just need to find the food to cook on it.
Wood gas stoves, that burn wood and, probably, charcoal and alcohol stoves are, relatively clean and can be made for free from cans.
The total population of Sub-Saharan Africa is at least 1.17 billion.
maybe rocket stove, better than open fire. known for a long time.
“ Maybe it runs on imaginaruim?”
There are vast deposits of imaginaruim in Congo. They just have to dig it out.
Larry Winiarski, Technical Director of Aprovecho, began developing the rocket stove in 1980 based on a VITA stove, designed by Sam Baldwin, and rediscovered the principles of the systems developed by the Romans in hypocaust heating and cooking systems.[6
Looks like it was developed by white guys................
Thanks. Sounds high to me, but I’ll take your word for it.
God is always working to promote the growth of the human population, in order finally to reap the full harvest of heaven’s residents.
How to make a rocket stove
It burns wood, or any other solid fuel but it burns cleaner and with less smoke.
Looks a lot like a smokeless fire pit.
They don’t have the knowhow needed to extract it. That’s why
western advanced technology/ money will be needed to exploit this resource.
She bought a microwave oven at Costco, and they gave her $1.2 million?
That was my thought, probably some variant of a rocket stove.
The population of Europe is 750 million. Africa is 3 times larger than Europe. [Europe is smaller than Antarctica]
Major point is NOTHING on the technology but the important thing is what?
Two things. A) black B) female.
Gotta have your intersectionality.
