A woman lights an improved cookstove in front of her house in Kirundo Province, Northern Burundi. These cooking systems are more efficient, emit less emissions, and are safer than the 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.
