A Stove That Saved Lives.


http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/industry/4224765.html

Darfur, Sudan was consistently making headlines a while back about the genocide going on there. Lot of women and children were in refugee camps. But they had to go out for daily routine stuff like getting firewood etc. And that’s when they became prey of killers.

This stove designed by UC Berkley team and Ashok Gadgil / Christina Galitsky uses only one fourth of the firewood. So instead of having to go out every day to collect firewood, women can go only once a week. So 75% reduction in usage of fuel wood means 75% reduction in chances of getting raped and killed and mutilated.

This is real technology, which has direct link to life and emotions.

Here is a link to the main website dedicated to the stove.
