Project: The Heart of Home
According to the WHO, indoor air pollution due to open stove cooking is one of the most common causes of health problems in Colombia. And it is women and children who are impacted the most, because they are responsible for most of the domestic work in Columbia.
We wanted help, so in 2019 we started the Heart of Home project with the aim of finding a solution to the polluted indoor climate. We quickly found out that with a modern eco-stove we could eliminate the harmful particle pollution from the hearth, and so far we have installed ovens at 60 female coffee farmers and their families, thus ensuring them a slightly healthier everyday life.
