SVSI project – Smart stoves distribution for Musahar community

SVSI & partners donate smart stoves to Musahar community in Nepal as traditional stoves increase respiratory diseases among the people.

Smart stoves have been distributed to the Musahar families resident near Sauraha, Chitwan. Stating that respiratory diseases are increasing in the Musahar community using traditional stoves, Sapana Village Social Impact has distributed improved stoves in collaboration with Soul Ventures, (Riksja Travels, Netherlands), Wilde Ganzen, and Baghmara Community Forest Users Group.
The improved smart stoves will be truly useful in reducing the workload of Musahar women and helping in reducing respiratory and smoky diseases. The conservation of forest would be effective only if all sectors take the lead in the growth and development of forest dependent communities.

Cooking in a traditional stove consumes a lot of firewood and the smoke from it also causes respiratory diseases in women. The traditional fire places are also at risk for children to be burnt while playing inside the house.
Thanks to all for attending the program to motivate us and aware people to be more conscious.
