Construction of a Kitchen and Installation of Fuel-Efficient Stoves at Ayalagaya Secondary School

Smoke-induced diseases are a major cause of mortality in rural Tanzania.

Karimu built a kitchen with three large fuel-efficient stoves to counter one of the world’s most lethal environmental health risks. According to the World Health Organization, smoke-induced diseases are responsible for the deaths of 4.3 million people per year—more deaths than are caused by malaria or tuberculosis. These respiratory diseases are a major cause of mortality in rural Tanzania.
