|Clean Cooking Activities||We make carbonised black cylindrical flammable briquettes by recycling agricultural waste in partnership with the community. The raw material for our briquette production is dried organic solid waste.

Our briquettes have the following attributes;
|Partnership||We would like to make a contribution in the following ways:|
Environment and Health: Through managing and processing waste we make productive fuel out of otherwise useless by products. Use of briquettes does not contribute to deforestation and land degradation like traditional firewood and charcoal consumption. The Environment is also cleaned in the process
Creation of employment opportunities: We engage women and youths in the collection of waste and the production and distribution of briquettes. This gives them a source of livelihood and income, and averts the violence that would otherwise result from their idleness.
Efficiency: Our briquettes give customers certainty so that they are able to manage their budgets. They are consistent in in size and shape and ready to use upon purchase, so the same amount of energy is delivered during each use, unlike firewood which can vary in size, moisture content and temperature making it difficult to determine how much fuel is needed.
