The Impact

This business will improve the standards of living of people it will employ, whereby 10 casual labors who will be employed,working 20 days per month will be able to receive 100000 rwf each and 5 regular workers, working 2 hours per day will receive 35000rwf each.People living in Rweru sector and other nearing regions will find the market for their agricultural wastes which were previously idle.Our project will reduce the level of deforestation in eastern province at the rate of 30% which will be improved year after year. The level of CO2 emitted in the atmosphere is to be reduced by 25% in the first year of operations which will be improved as the business grows, and bush fires are to be reduced by 40% in the eastern province. Households will benefit smoke free charcoals at the lowest cost comparing to other sources of energy and it will boom their savings. Currently households in rural areas spend approximately $120 for wood based charcoals in a year while their earning range between$500 and $600 in a year. Out of this remaining income, they have to pay school fees for their children as well as food consumption and consequently their income become a constraint. This project is aimed at solving this problem in an economical and environment friendly way.projects like this are taking place in kenya, tanzania and we want to bring positive impacts in our country. the benefit of this project is beyond the country level since it protect the environment from deforestation and exposure of wastes on the surface.
