How DANIDA creates a better framework for the people in Nepal ?
Mrs. Laxmi B.K., 40, cooks some rice with her improved cooking stove(ICS). She first heard from energy projects throughout the community that requested ICS in her village through the NGO REDA in Nepal which is supported through DANIDA. She shares her past days when she had to struggle with the smokes all around and hours of cooking in the kitchen. She is now happy given that she does not have to be in the smoky environment any longer and she can cook variety of food in a very lesser time with lesser fuelwood. The ICS project makes her life better because now the kitchen is smokeless, she can cook double with the same amount of wood at a lesser time and can cook several things at a time, the food remains hot for longer, etc.
