Provide a fuel-efficient & environment friendly cooking stove to a needy institute, INR 14500

" Overview

Technology Informatics Design Endeavour (TIDE) has been in the business of developing and disseminating fuel-efficient and less air polluting stoves for more than a decade. Being an NGO, their objective is to disseminate this technology widely and facilitate communities to benefit. They have received overwhelming positive feedback from the users on the cost saving potential and health impacts with these stoves.

How It Works

• TIDE has got details of traditional cook-stoves being used in Tamilnadu through surveys carried out as part of our earlier projects.
• From these surveys, they shortlist Institutions/ Homes/ Ashrams which have a genuine need for these products – these are places which are run through donations and which cannot afford to invest in these products.
• The impact on these places would be manifold – their fuel consumption will reduce, cooking time comes down and the kitchen will be a better place to work in.
• TIDE members have carried out their work with due diligence in these places and these will be serviced by their own people.
• Once they have enough funds, they will be giving them the fuel efficient stoves and transition them from traditional, smoky, fuel gulping stoves.
• TIDE has partners who will fabricate the stoves as per their requirement and supply.
• They will also monitor and provide maintenance support for the users.
• Under a project with IIT Delhi and MNRE, they have distributed a number of multipurpose chulhas to schools for mid day meal programme in Madurai region.
• In a project executed by TIDE in 2014-15, they have given a few stoves to institutions in Karnataka AP, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.

Clean kitchen - better food
St Annes Home at Bangalore is a charity home for nuns. At their two branches, their cooks were working in traditional stoves in an environment full of smoke. Cooking for 40 -50 people at a time was no easy task and in addition, they were exposed to smoke and had to cook with watering eyes and burning lungs. It was but a matter of time before they started suffering from respiratory disorders due to indoor air pollution. Shifting to LPG was also not an option due to the high cost involved.
TIDE provided them with a smokeless and fuel efficient cook stove which was also time saving.
Where the cooks had to earlier spend hours in an environment full of smoke to prepare food, now they were doing the same in a smoke free and healthy atmosphere. The time required for cooking also reduced drastically and now they say that cooking is no more a nightmare for them Has saved 35% of fuel expenses and about 50% of cooking time.
