Environmental Friendly Energy Sources (Briquettes Making)

Year: 2019
Country: Malawi
Project Status: Funded
Impact Sector: Environment
Project Investment: $688.74

Project Launch: 10-3-19

This project will train 35 women from Chikanda, Malawi in briquette production using locally sourced materials, such as sawdust and waste paper. The long-lasting briquettes are easy to make and emit little smoke, thereby protecting the environment from gas emissions and deforestation. The women will use the briquettes as an alternative for cooking fuel, as firewood is a scarce resource in the area. Excess briquettes will be sold to the community. The proceeds will be used as a revolving fund, enabling the women to acquire loans to start small businesses.
