    In third world countries 90% of child death is caused by the inhalation of smoke caused by indoor cooking on an open fire. These devastating numbers concerned and shocked us, so we wanted to help decreasing them. We focused on Burkina Faso, a stable African country, for the solution of this problem and came up whit our first product the MIY-stove. It is a metal mould to make a clay-stove and chimney, in which a fire can be made. This system will lead the smoke outside and will take the risk of carbon-monoxide poisoning completely away. This way children have a safe and healthy environment to live in. With the mould and manual they can easily make a clay- stove which allows them to cook healthier. On top of that: they can make as many as they want! They can sell the stoves on the market, this way earning back the money they paid for it (and more!). The mould is designed to make a mould that has a stable shape, fit all pots, its material and thus burning less wood, which is a cost less. It’s main purpose is to lead the smoke away, this is done with a modular chimney. Read Less
