Smokeless Cookstove Foundation
A Not-For-Profit Foundation inspired by the work of Himalayan Rocket Stove
About Our Work
As a result of testing and prototyping the Himalayan Rocket Stove in Ladakh, we discovered an easy, cheap and effective way for anyone to make their own smokeless cookstoves (chulhas) in a format that suits their own home. This project encompasses the various ways we are addressing the issue of Household Air Pollution.
You can support the work of the Smokeless Cookstove Foundation, and in particular our lead program, the Smokeless Cookstove Revolution by donating on our Chuffed Crowdfunding page. All donations made here go 100% towards funding training programs for rural villagers who desperately need the work we offer here.
The number of direct impacts so far
Volunteers & Trainers
We are now in the process of scaling up to meet the demand for our workshops in the field in India. We are seeking committed people to help us. Initially volunteer positions are offered, and if you prove to be a good fit with our teams and ethos, some paid training positions will be offered to select volunteers.
Social Impact Journeys
Another way to get involved with our programs is to join one of our upcoming social impact journeys. These are aimed at people with a passion for social intervention and a curiousity about local cultures and scenic highlights. The journeys are a combination of meaningful tourism and social work, both fun and impactful.
