A Daily Struggle in the Kitchen
In most of the world, cooking is a dirty and time-consuming job that involves feeding some piece of fuel-- like wood, charcoal, or coal-- into a fire. Globally, some 500 million households depend on burning solid fuel to meet their cooking, heating, lighting, and other household energy needs. The resulting smoke fills homes and villages making women and children sick and contributing to global climate change.
