Clean Cooking ActivitiesSince 2011 when Global Hand began working in this part of the country, we have realized that communities that are close to the forest areas of Mount Cameroon have engaged in indiscriminate exploitation of forest resources especially wood which is their major source of energy. In this light, we equally came to realized that some household make use of more than 25 kg of wood per day. looking at the health implications, it is obvious that, wood produce a lot of smoke which is very dangerous to health. Also, it is noted that women stand a greater risk because they are a very strong actor in the kitchens than men. Considering the amount of wood that they use a day, one can easily understand the amount of heat energy that they expose them selves to which is also harmful to their health. It is on these notes that we are looking for more efficient cooking techniques that can better support good health meanwhile, we are also determine to build capacities with regards to clean cooking stoves. Through this, we will save lives, income, the forest, habitat, and empower women.
