This was part of a programme aiming to present a total 52,000 energy-saving stoves worth 16 billion VND (nearly 685,000 USD) to women's union members in poor and near-poor families in the province, which is sponsored by KCM and coordinated by Intraco.
Beneficiaries included women in the communes of Lam Thuong, Khanh Thien, Mai Son, Yen Thang, Muong Lai, Tan Linh, To Mau, An Lac, Dong Quan and Truc Lau.
The cook stove is heated by burning wood and generates high temperature which takes a short time to cook. It is easy to light and produces less smoke, thereby reducing exhaust gas and saving fuel by 50 percent compared to the tripod style.
The use of energy efficient stoves is hoped to contribute to environmental protection, slow down climate change, and save time and improve people’s lives.
