Ram Kumar Rai from Bung poses happily in front of his newly built Improved Cook Stove -ICS.
Constant exposure to smoke in traditional open fireplaces causes lung and eye diseases, kitchens require constant cleaning, and also has low fuel efficiency. These ICSs are designed to emit no or very less smoke inside, increase heat efficiency thus lowering firewood consumption and also speed up cooking time.
After the popularity of ICS in neighboring Chheskam and Gudel, the community of Bung also wanted to run an ICS program to lessen indoor smoke. This year, we are working with around 300 houses here to test the ICS. Next year, we hope to increase this number to cover majority of houses in Bung.
