This project primarily reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also it contributes a number of co-benefits that support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Deforestation in Rwanda impacts not only the environment but also the rural communities that source their fuel for cooking and heating from nearby woodlands.

Cooking is traditionally done inside homes with little ventilation, the smoke inhalation can cause respiratory infections and lung diseases for children and other household members. Rwandan households that are provided with fuel efficient cook stoves have less exposure to smoke from burning wood and coal of open fires and fewer burns and injuries occur. As there is less reliance on wood collection families have more time for schooling and the supervision of children.

The cook stoves in this project are manufactured at a Rwandan factory from locally sourced products, supporting the economy and employing people from the Bugesera District.
