Description

Cooking with charcoal and firewood is equivalent to being exposed to 400 cigarettes per hour. While people want cleaner fuels, paying for gas upfront is too expensive for most, exposing more than 80% of families in sub-Saharan Africa to harmful fumes every single day. Through smart meters and pay as you go technology we've grown fast to one of the biggest national distributors in Tanzania. We are working tirelessly to bring families a new alternative.
