BioLite HomeStove Owner | Kamuli, Uganda
Mary is a farmer in a village 150 km away from BioLite’s primary distribution point for Uganda in the capital of Kampala. Mary learned about the HomeStove by chance a year ago when her neighbor brought one back from Kampala. At that time she was cooking over a mud stove which constantly smoked causing her children to suffer from coughing fits. As far back as she could remember, people in her village cooked like this and due to her location, it didn’t surprise her that nothing more convenient had come her way.
Today, Mary cooks comfortably over the HomeStove. She saves money on fuel and has more to spend on school fees for her eight children. Mary is invested in her community’s well being and wants them to experience a change like this. She doesn’t think that distance should make a difference. We agree.
With a high demand in urban Kampala, the local BioLite team has been constantly busy and lacks bandwidth to make delivery trips to reach more remote communities who are in need of the HomeStove too. By expanding our reach into new territories, we can bring our stove to families who rarely travel to the city, we can show them that days filled with smoke and coughing no longer have to be a reality.
Your purchase today will help us establish warehouses in more remote locations and open up stock points to serve the surrounding villages.
