After visiting the Clean Cookstove Project and a real Maasai hamlet, spend the evening in Arusha.See firsthand the advantages of the Clean Cookstove Project by visiting a Maasai hamlet in the Monduli District. Ninety-five percent of Tanzanians cook with coal and wood. Every day, women and girls walk for hours in order to gather wood, which leaves them open to attack and prevents them from using that time to attend school. Open-fire stove indoor smoke can lead to burns, emphysema, cancer, pneumonia, and blindness. Visit bomas, or traditional dwellings, on a guided tour of these villages where you may meet the ladies who have received stove engineering training and either watch (or get your hands dirty) by assisting the Stove Team in installing a stove in a home. Observe the positive effects that the clean-burning stoves have on the Maasai villagers’ daily lives and health, particularly for the ladies.
