A stove changed Shardha’s life.
Shardha lives in a one-room house in Kollihatti village in Karnataka. Like most people in the village, she used a traditional 3 stone stove for cooking.
The stove let out dense smoke which made it hard for her to breathe. The walls of her house turned black from the smoke. Shardha became worried about her children’s health. She started asking them to sit outside the house whenever she cooked. This situation made her life difficult but she did not know what could be done.
Her life changed when TIDE arranged for a 'Sarala' stove in her house. She began to cook faster and did not have to worry about smoke any longer. She no longer had to spend time gathering firewood. So she could use that time to gain more money with agriculture and animal husbandry. Her family’s health also improved and they get to spend a lot more time together.
