We also train the community members in the making and installation of energy saving cook stoves (jikos) to farmers. The “jikos” design serves the purposes of reducing the amount of fuel used and the amount of smoke emitted. Our efforts in promoting Environment conservation and management is built on the 2 Sustainable Development goals;
Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.”
Goal 15: Life on Land “Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.”
