Harmful cooking

We all cook, every day. One push of a button and our stove does the work. In many places in the world, it's very different. Women are on the road all day to gather wood, and then cook their pot on an open fire. With all the consequences, because cooking on an open fire is harmful to your health.


The Green Elephant Foundation has been associated with Uganda for many years. In Kampala, we are active in educating women to switch to healthy, safe cooking methods. Cooking on an efficient cooking stove with environmentally friendly briquettes or pellets. In addition, we help the population to switch to a healthy and safe cooking method through fundraising for cooking stoves and clean fuel.
