Cook Stoves for Kenya

Why we need your help


Cooking on an open fire isn't fun
for thousands of women in Kenya and around the world. It causes
chronic health problems and there's a huge environmental impact too, in
deforestation and CO2 emissions.
Cooking on an open fire isn't fun for thousands of women in Kenya and around the world. It causes chronic health problems and there's a huge environmental impact too, in deforestation and CO2 emissions.

Our latest project, in partnership with Taunton based company CO2balance UK Ltd., and the Aniga Women's Group in Kisumu, Kenya, will provide energy efficient cookstoves which use around a third of the wood consumed by a traditional cooking fire. Global Footsteps will match the money we raise, to pay CO2balance to train the women and buy the raw materials to make the stoves – using local staff in Kisumu.

Why not offset your Carbon Emissions? Use the CO2balance carbon calculator to estimate the value of your journey's CO2 production. Then donate the Offset Price to our cookstove project using the links below! 

Give a cookstove using the links below in lieu of a present for a friend or family member. We will send you a gift card to give to them explaining the project. Just email us with your contact details once you have made your £20 donation below.

Or simply make a donation using the links below! Remember Global Footsteps will match all donations until we reach our target.


The small print. The cost of producing a stove is approximately £20. When you buy a cookstove for £20 you are making a donation to Global Footsteps which will be used towards our Cookstoves for Kenya project. In the unlikely event of us not being able to implement the project all funds donated will still be matched and transferred to an existing alternative existing cookstove project

I am donating here following an appeal at Acomb Quaker Meeting as I wish my donation to be Gift Aided. This is an excellent way of saving firewood, reducing CO2 production and providing significant health benefits to people in Kenya.
