When you reach the summit of a good climb some people will sigh with relief, others will cheer and for this forest conservation committee they enjoy a song.
It’s probably quite apparent to many of you that singing in Malawi is part of every day life and a way to show gratitude and thanks – something we’ve been able to share with you in recent weeks from the new villages benefiting from our fuel-efficient cookstove.
Our forest conservation and fuel-efficient cookstove project work together. Protecting the forests with local forest conservation committees is one element to ensuring the trees remain for years to come but introducing our cookstove helps reduce deforestation too.
How? Because the cookstoves use less wood and smaller pieces of wood so people can collect dead wood or coppice branches instead.
