About the project Edit

The improved oven uses only local materials and costs nothing. However, the technique is a little complicated: mixing clay and cow dung, shaping, drying for several days. It can also be easily damaged by weather and cracks reduce efficiency. It is without a doubt for these reasons that, despite major progress, it is still a way to save energy.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

We have noticed for some time now that with soil degradation, as well as the lack of rain, it is necessary to develop this project which would allow us to save energy.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

In terms of economic benefit, the improved oven saves energy, reduces wood consumption by 40% and also protects nature.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

In Benin, Burkina Faso, as well as in the sub-region, small community associations that bring together a few members who often make up a united community through a strong social connection, share their passions and values.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

The triggering factor for this project is that with soil degradation and lack of rains, it is important to find voices and a means for saving energy and fight against poverty.

What is the business model of this project? Edit

As a tool to fight poverty, the project has a business component that is very, very important in society.
