The social enterprise Genexe Engineering sells efficient steel stoves for households and professional kitchens, which produce much less soot and smoke than open fires and are cheaper, more climate-friendly, healthier and more sustainable in the long term. Genexe Engineering distributes its ovens in Kenya and the neighbouring countries of Rwanda, Southern Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Most households in African countries still prepare their food over open fires. This produces toxic gases that can have a massive impact on health, particularly among women and children living near these open fires. Open fires also consume enormous fuel resources and contribute to climate change, which is a particularly serious threat for many countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
