In an atelier in Kirundo Province, Northern Burundi, members of the Batwa community are making improved cookstoves. These cooking systems are more efficient, emit fewer missions, and are safer than traditional ones. Building a market of improved cookstoves to shift to a more sustainable cooking system is a crucial component of AVSI’s UMUCO W’ITERAMBERE project. Funded by the European Union, the project improves the living conditions of rural communities in Burundi by providing them with access to a more efficient and durable energy system.
