Empowering women to have access to alternative sources of cleaner energy.

Research has shown that women and children in the informal settlements and rural areas are particularly to toxic effects of household air pollution from wood fuel and charcoal. This results in respiratory diseases and mortality due to pneumonia, lung cancer and impaired vision. </p>

RUWEPO in partnership with ASTICOM K Ltd will work to empower these women to access alternative sources of fuel for domestic use such as ethanol for cooking. This will eventually promote economic development and poverty eradication. This initiative will attempt to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Number 7 ( Affordable and clean energy), Number 10 ( Reduced inequalities) and Number 11 ( Sustainable cities and communities). It will further be in tandem with the Kenya Government BIG 4 Agenda. ( Housing, Food security, Health and Manufacturing.)
