Stuff About Me:

Selam! Thanks for checking out my page, I am an Ethiopian born California raised climate crusader working in rural Ethiopia building mud rocket stoves to reduce deforeation and harmful indoor air pollution that millions of women and children are exposed to every day. My background is in environmental studies and economics and I wanted to do a project that would positively impact the lives of women and children and lessen their daily burden, women and young girls often walk upwards to 15 miles to gather fire wood and carry it back home on their backs. The most logical solution to me was work on improving the stoves to benifit the cook and the climate!  


So 2 years ago I set off to discover what stoves would be the most appropriate and affordable for my countrywomen.  By using an improved cook stove, we can decrease their labor and free up time and resources so they can go to school.  I received  training at Aprovecho Research Center on Rocket stoves and decided to come back to Ethiopia and build mud rocket stoves as well as teach young people how to build them for their own communities as income generating  activities! All the materials are locally sourced and low cost--clay, pot ash and saw dust or coffee husks.

I am currently looking for funds to support my dream of training 60 women and youths on health issues associated with toxins from wood fires as well as training them on how to construct an improved cook stove for themselfs and their communities.

Thank you for your support and feedback!

Blessings,

Biseat
