Open fires and rudimentary cooking techniques cause damaging and deadly health risks for nearly three billion around the world, and kills millions of people in developing countries. The simple act of cooking for the family is the fourth worst risk factor for disease in developing countries and contributes about 4% to the global burden of disease, due to severe emissions of fine particles, carbon monoxide, and other pollutants. The EWB-GT Nicaragua Project was born from increasing awareness about the dangers of indoor air pollution and seeks to provide sustainable clean cooking solutions for the women in the Nuevo Amanecer.
