Chulha around the world
Other countries where the Low smoke chulha has been adopted.
Initially piloted in a limited number of villages in Maharashtra state, the Chulha has since been distributed by NGOs and local entrepreneurs in other states as well. But the problems associated with indoor cooking using biomass fuels are not just limited to India, so it was decided to investigate whether the Chulha would also prove equally as effective in similar contexts in other countries and continents.
So far the Chulha has been taken to Guatemala, Kenya and Laos. The Low Smoke Chulha showcased here has been redesigned and adapted to fit local materials and ways of cooking. Core concepts like modularity, reduction in indoor air pollution, reduction in firewood consumption, creation of entrepreneurs, etc. have been kept intact.
