DelAgua – Project Rwanda
The program will distribute high efficiency cook stoves and/or point of use water filters in East Africa, staring in Rwanda. Both technologies reduce the use of biomass on the baseline stoves, which are predominantly three-stone fires.
The technologies will be directly distributed to households, targeting those classified as ‘those in extreme poor’ and ‘the very poor’. Distribution will be conducted in collaboration with the Ministry Of Health, utilising the structure of Community Health Workers.
