The context we work in
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.
