IMPACT

BENEFITS FOR PEOPLE & THEIR PROSPERITY.

The TLC-CQC stove and better-ventilated kitchen lowers the incidence of respiratory and heart disease,  premature and underweight birth, blindness and reduce the risk of burns and indoor air pollution.

Switching to twigs and crop residues eliminates the burden of gathering firewood over long distances,  reducing the risk of muscle and spinal damage, and reducing the risk of physical abuse. Women can regain ~2  hours per day that can be used for other productive activities and needed rest.

The TLC-CQC stove enables cooking to be fueled with small-diameter branches, twigs and crop stalks, and corn cobs that are fast-growing, readily available, and 100%  renewable. Stacking fuel behind the stoves, against walls that reach temperatures around 75 degrees C, helps to dry them further and produce near smokeless combustion, decreasing burdens of disease.
