Naming Names Gratefully

This year more than ever, Salama Stoves is moving towards sustainability by focusing on developing our stove as a commercial product. That process has involved moving to new manufacturer’s in Nairobi, and the start of a reseller program. This is all so that we can better support our donation program into the future, but also recognizing that the Salama Stove represents a healthier, safer alternative to the traditional but dangerous 3-stone fires in much of rural Kenya. Bringing the stove to market, is a social change agenda, as much as the fire safety awareness training we’ve been doing. It’s a product which can positively alter the health and safety risks in a typical rural home. In other words, more Salama Stoves in more homes equals fewer burns, fewer breathing problems, fewer children with severe burn injuries.

However, it’s a sobering fact that without the people who give money to support our programs, we would be able to do nothing!

We have a long way to go and the needs are great. We get requests every week for donated stoves, the problems and dangers of 3-stone traditional fires do not go away and our efforts are just a drop in a very large ocean.

To get this far already, so that we can make future plans, so that we can do the training, so that we can continue to donate stoves, sell stoves, to lower risks, we have a number of people to thank – here they are – we are grateful – truly grateful !!
