Rhinos December 6 Group's story

Ignatius is a 59-year-old man who lives with six other family members in a multi-bedroom house that has access to electricity. He manages a business and struggles with paying for charcoal and other energy expenses. Ignatius spends a total of 83,000 UGX on all of his fuel and electricity expenses.

He and the other members of his village group each purchased the ACE-1 cookstove to help their families save money every month on fuel. They will also be able to access solar electricity for charging their mobile devices anytime for free. The ACE-1 clean cookstove is powered by biomass and solar energy.
