Why we invest

Indoor air pollution caused by bad cookstoves is a leading cause of lung disease and respiratory illness in poor countries. It turns out that only the best, "forced-draft" stoves reduce pollutants to a level low enough to improve health and save lives. The problem is that these stoves -- at ~$70 each -- are not affordable. Inyenyeri leases smokeless stoves to families for a nominal fee and sells biomass pellets to them at a cost that is lower than the charcoal they are already buying. This is the only scalable cooking solution we've ever seen that has the potential to improve health and even reduce deforestation.
