The typical stove used for cooking in most homes in Ghana country wide is not much better than a stone or iron age campfire. It is poorly insulated, inefficiently burns a lot of fire wood and it spews disease-causing particulates into the air. In addition, the weekly cost for wood helps keep numerous families in poverty. The solution is to provide needy families with better cooking stoves. These stoves reduce or eliminate the need for wood thus reducing the demand for logging forests, reduce poverty via several ways- reduces starvation through increased crop production. The Shape Lives Foundation is providing fuel- efficient cooking stoves to impoverished families that cannot afford to buy at cash price in the market. In return, these families plant Moringa trees and nurture them to grow either at their gardens, farms and other designated places for their nutritional needs, protect the environment and to reduce global warming.
