January trip to Malawi will help improve rocket stoves

 

Ken Ekegren will be returning to Malawi in 2016 with students from North Central State College to redesign rocket stoves that are used in Malawi. They hope that a business can be started selling these new rocket stoves. This article is from North Central State College Newsletter.

The original kitchen was built in 2012 when the orphan project fed 250 – 300 orphans. Due to the needs in the area the orphan project increased the number of children they feed and in 2015 feed more than 400 children on a regular basis.  Kitchen

Prior to the kitchen being built in 2012, the volunteers prepared the food outside over smoky, three stone fires.

 

Thanks to Joy Lutheran Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the volunteers at the orphan project have an expanded kitchen to help feed the children in the area. All the stoves are rocket stoves to help decrease the amount of wood that is used for fuel.
