This project provides cook stoves to families in Malawi, Africa. The project is run by Ripple Africa, a UK based charity. Cook stoves replace the traditional way off cooking  with open fire between three rocks which is highly inefficient and consumes large amounts of fuel (i.e. wood). Thus families will breath cleaner air and spend less time gathering wood so they can play with their children instead. To find out more about this project,  click here.
