Pioneering Sustainable Change in the Heart of the Himalayas

In the breathtaking villages nestled amidst the foothills of the Himalayas, Hindukush, and Pamir mountain ranges, the Stove Project stands as a groundbreaking initiative dedicated to driving sustainable change. In these mountainous terrains, pervasive energy poverty has given rise to formidable challenges, contributing to rampant deforestation and environmental crises. The absence of clean energy sources for cooking and heating has exacerbated the situation, intensifying the impact of poverty. As climate change raises temperatures and worsens natural disasters, the urgency to address these interconnected issues becomes paramount.

Our Focus: High Mountains of South and Central Asia

Our current efforts are concentrated on the high mountains of South and Central Asia, home to nearly 240 million people. These communities grapple with the adverse impacts of climate change, compounded by a lack of governmental support. Those living in abject poverty face significant challenges.


Dedicated to Sustainable Solutions

In the face of escalating climate change, the Stove Project is committed to reducing carbon emissions and improving the lives of women in these communities. Our pilot phase involves the implementation of 100 energy-efficient stoves, with completion slated for December 2023. These stoves are designed to revolutionize daily lives by enabling cooking and heating with minimal smoke emissions, addressing the pressing issue of air pollution. Additionally, our commitment extends to refining stove designs and identifying alternative, sustainable fuel sources to tackle the problem of deforestation caused by the prevalent use of wood.


Striving Towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, we actively explore various avenues for project funding and assess opportunities within the carbon credit market. Our overarching goal is to ensure the longevity and scalability of our initiatives, leaving a lasting impact on local communities and the environment. The lives of women, in particular, stand to benefit greatly from these efforts, as they play a pivotal role in household activities affected by traditional cooking methods.
