Clean Stoves

ACEC purchased 38 energy-efficient stoves and distributed to 38 women and their households. These women will now be able to cook efficiently both in domestic and commercial settings and simultaneously reduce health risks through exposure to smoke while they limit spending on charcoal leading to more savings!
  • Local solution

    Prior to the intervention, an average household (size of 4) within the target areas spent 2 cedis a day on charcoal. Now, households save as much $78 per annum (365 cedis).

    Lives improved

    the usage of cook stoves has significantly reduced the exposure to smoke particularly among children and women. This has minimized their chances of contracting diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema, cataracts, lung cancer, bronchitis, cardiovascular disease, and low birth weight.

    At the climate resilience level, the use of the stoves has reduced the demand and need for charcoal, and rather enhances efficiency in use. Carbon emissions have also been reduced as large burning of charcoal and fuel wood contributes to its rise. Each unit of the stove reduces 3.6 tons of carbon emission per annum.

    Community impact

    The use of open fire and other poor cooking systems is a common practise in Ghana. In recent times, the message of energy saving cook stoves being an alternative to traditional cook stove has gained grounds, and gradually becoming a part of the Ghanaian household fabric.

    Unfortunately, in most poor households within urban settings, the adoption of cook stoves has been low. This is as a result of a number of factors. These include limited knowledge, entrenched mind-sets, investment cost or cost of purchasing the stoves, and also accessibility to these stoves by consumers.

    Budget

    ACEC requires more support/donations in order to touch the lives of all women and households in a positive way. Securing three-wheeled motorbikes (a.k.a. tricycles) for mass distribution of clean cook stoves is a game changer that will ensure all needy households receive clean energy stoves for cooking to improve their general wellbeing. One major benefit apart from households receiving energy-efficient cook stoves is the fact that many other people including welders, riders, painters, and vendors can all make a living through ACEC’s initiative of using tricycles to distribute the cook stoves to households that are in very remote areas.

Testimonials

  • ACEC is creating awareness on the need to conserve and protect mangrove resources owing to its importance to wildlife and the environment. I think this is commendable because it has revived my livelihood of fish mongering. I will be able to provide for my family now.

  • ACEC’s work in Ghana has contributed to the increased resilience of communities to climate change through cookstove distribution and seedlings. They reach the most vulnerable communities. Since my interaction with them, ACEC have achieved any target they have set for themselves.
