“Before I was introduced to SMECAO (Same and Mwanga Environmental Advisory Organization) fuel efficient stoves I was using traditional three-stone fire places for cooking. I wasted a lot of time fetching for firewood instead of engaging in other economic activities, I used to collect firewood four times per week. Also smoke inhalation due to the use of three-stone fire places inside the house was a problem to my health. After I was introduced to SMECAO fuel efficient stoves, I collect firewood only two times per week, the rest of the day I use for going to my farms and doing other productive activities” said Ms Zainabu Mmasa.
