Rain forest communities receive energy-saving stoves Obal Ofem, Caritas Nigeria

Caritas Nigeria in collaboration with the Calabar Centre for Justice & Peace Initiative (CCJPI) is working with nineteen rain forest communities in the Oban corridor of the Cross River State National Park to distribute energy-saving cook stoves to its rural dwellers.

The Energy-Saving Cook-stoves Project (name of program), is geared towards:

  1. Reducing deforestation and conserving the forest in the Nigerian rainforest belt; and
  2. Minimizing the number of people who die from smoke inhalation.

Technical partner for the project is iceed, a company with technology for producing the innovative energy-saving and environmentally-friendly stoves for tropical communities in Africa.

So far about 14 communities have already benefited from the intervention.
