Saving Women’s Lives with Improved Cook Stoves


In India, more than 800,000 people, among them mostly women, die due to household pollution every year in peri urban and rural areas through use of conventional household chulhas.

Women who cook on these chulhas are completely oblivious of the ill effects of these stoves. The smoke emitted from these chulhas do not bother them in most cases, as they look at it as something which subsides with time, and most of the rural women have grown up seeing their mothers experiencing this smoke every day. But the fact is, that it is silent killer which affects the children too as they accompany their mothers in the kitchen.

CARE India is promoting the use of Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) as a clean energy and sustainable solution among slum/village dwellers households. It emits far less smoke, uses less firewood and is good for the environment.

We are seeking your support to save lives of mothers and children who are not even aware that they are slowly dying every day.

Make a difference in the lives of marginalised women and girls and enjoy tax benefits under 80G.
