Inspiring cooking stove

Uganda is dying because of deforestation. Its women are terribly affected by smoke from cooking fires.

One man has done something to reduce both problems.

He has devised a zero-cost mud stove that reduces firewood use to half, and eliminates indoor smoke.

The description took me back to my mudsmith days, and is very similar to mud pizza ovens we in Australia build for fun. In Uganda, though, the technique is used for survival.

More strength to Badru Kyewalyanga.
