Alternative energy for cooking

Challenge Background

Excess tree felling for cooking and other economic benefits has led to the problem of erosion in many rural communities. This is because the lack of affordable and sustainable alternative energy sources for domestic and agricultural use has forced many communities to rely heavily on firewood and charcoal for cooking. In addition firewood and charcoal have also become a source of livelihood for some rural communities, who sell them for economic sustenance.
