Targeting: Health, Sustainable Energy 

Project Summary

The bio-gas project will be providing a healthier and more sustainable way to fuel the stove burners. The center will no longer need to cut trees down for firewood indoors which is harmful to the staff and children, and at the same time the bio-gas system will provide organic manure for their existing garden increasing the yield of vegetables from the farm. The project will save $1,156.95 a year in the costs of purchasing firewood. This money will be reinvested to the center to pay for the current social worker. 

Bio-gas project was installed using kitchen biodegradable waste. Saving the center money for purchase of fuel and helping in environment conservation (prevent tree cutting) and improve health of the children by reducing inhaling of a lot of carbon monoxide due to use of charcoal and firewood.
