Problem

Lack of access to clean drinking water is a major development challenge facing communities in informal and rural settlements in Kenya resulting in Water borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhea.

}

Solution

Jiko Raha a fuel-efficient biomass stoves featuring an innovative in built jacket that enables the user to simultaneously boil water thus sanitizing it whilst cooking enabling households have safe drinking water free of disease causing micro-organisms.

Target Beneficiaries

Rural and urban informal settlements in Nairobi , Kilifi, Kiambu and Kitui in Kenya.The project will also target rural communities in Rwanda and Uganda. Children aged 0-100 days ( infants ) , Teenage mothers aged 15-25 years , Mothers aged 25-45 living in slums with an average income of USD 2-3 per day , Grandmothers made caregivers by absent daughters who gave birth at home or deceased.

Mission and Vision

Accelerating access to safe drinking water and clean cook stoves thus reduced incidence of waterborne diseases , children who miss school as a result of water-related illnesses reduced.

Innovation Description

Jiko Raha – both fuel-efficient biomass stoves featuring an innovative in built jacket that can be filled with 3 litters of water that enables the user to simultaneously boil water thus sanitizing it whilst cooking enabling households have safe drinking water free of disease causing micro-organisms. The stove through pilot studies was able to save a household USD 17.85 monthly with fuel reduction from USD 23.81 to only USD 5.96 monthly a 75% reduction in fuel costs and zero cost in water sanitization which has contributed to reduction of water borne diseases.

Competitive Advantage

Currently, there is no other cook stove product in the market that we are serving that is a dual purpose stove which provides cooking and water disinfection through boiling. Water purifier’s that cost more than STAMP multitasking stoves and purify minimal amount of water per day.

Planned Goals and Milestones

Refining the production process to increase efficiency and product outlook , developing MEL process for monitoring usage on real time , marketing and business development processes.
