As the first stoves to be distributed in Rwanda reach their new homes, co2balance has been providing the opportunity for local community members to learn new skills and get involved with the implementation of our project. Yesterday, 5 members of the Ngeruka Sector took part in a training day with our local NGO partner, to learn about the use and benefits of the efficient stoves, fuel management, and the quantitative measurement of wood fuel to determine the real savings that the new co2balance stoves can make! These skills will not only lead to much needed employment in the area, but will also be passed on to whole communities through a structured education programme.
