In Chad, cooking on a traditional cookstove isn’t easy.
The stoves are made out of frail metal wires, which can disintegrate over time, allowing hot coals to slip out and cause burns. The stoves can also tip over when you place something heavy on top – like a pot of boiling water. And many traditional cookstoves will deteriorate after only three to four months. Without insulation the traditional stoves also lose heat quickly, slowing down cooking time and requiring lots of charcoal made from wood.
