STAMP Investments distributes multitasking fuel efficient stoves and briquettes which enables schools and households in Kenya have access to safe drinking water thus a reduction in water borne diseases , save time and fuel costs (75 %) while cooking.
Lack of access to clean drinking water is a major development challenge facing communities in informal and rural settlements in Kenya. Through his work with women’s groups in urban informal settlements and rural areas in Kenya, stamp director Keneth Ndua observed that water borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhea are common due to people drinking contaminated water from shallow wells, and that women in the community spend a significant amount of their time caring for family and friends who are ill. He also observed that most people could not afford the extra fuel needed to boil water and sanitize it due to high living costs and low purchasing power. This escalated water borne diseases especially diarrhea which affects millions of people worldwide, having the greatest impact on children, especially in Sub Saharan Africa
